This feature enables users to add dynamic information, known as variable tags, to the file name of an export template in General Settings =>
Content Delivery => Export Templates. The file name changes based on the value of the tag that is included. You can use the following variable tags:
Add Variable Tag to File Name
You can include multiple variable tags in the file name, similar to what is used in the export tables for direct marketing tasks and segment maps. Variable tags are available when you edit an export template as well.
Some variable tags are not supported by certain file types. For example, the CSV file type supports all variable tags, but the table and SAS data set file types do not support the %%USERID%% tag.
Note: Changing the file type after variable tags have been added could change the supported variable tags.
When you select an export template, the template’s export name is prefilled with information from the selected variable tags. When a name for an export template contains a variable tag that does not apply to the object, a default name is used instead.

Cost-center budgeting is a top-down approach that gives marketers more granular control over their marketing budgets and expense tracking. SAS 360 Plan provides users an option to configure settings for budgeting with or without cost centers.
With appropriate role-based capabilities, marketers can create and manage a planning item budget for a given time period by allocating funds from the budgets that are available for predefined cost centers. A user can select multiple cost centers and associate them with a fiscal period to create a cost-center budget. The combination of the selected cost centers and the fiscal period creates a unique entity in the application.
Example of Cost-Center Budgets
The planning item budget is calculated as the sum of the funds that are allocated from each cost center.
Example of a Planning Item Budget
Expenses are also tracked for specific cost centers and fiscal periods. This enhancement enables marketers to track expenses at a more granular level.
For example, for the fiscal year 2022, consider a hierarchy of a plan that contains three programs. Each program contains two campaigns.
Example of a Plan Hierarchy
The budget for the plan is the sum of the amounts that are allocated from each of the selected cost centers.
Only the cost centers that are selected for a plan (parent item) are available for the programs (child items). Only the cost centers that are selected for a program (parent item) are available for the campaigns (child items).
Note: A child item can access the cost centers that are selected for the parent item only.
If the budget for the plan is allocated from two cost centers, the program’s budget can be allocated only from those two cost centers. Finally, if the program budget is actually allocated from only one of the two cost centers, then the campaign’s budget is also allocated from that single cost center.
When you track expenses for a planning item, only the cost centers that are available to the parent item are available for commitments and invoices.
To select a budgeting approach that is most suitable for your organization, contact your SAS technical representative.
