Does SAS Enterprise Guide have Programmer Collaboration Tools and Capability?

I'm looking for information that describes SAS Enterprise Guide's ability to allow members of a programmer team to work together within a single, integrated process flow window.

 

I'm envisioning each member of the team seeing the same project tree and process flow within EG and being able to work on a particular project within the project tree, in series or in parallel.  For example, each person would "check out" the data set needed from a common folder to perform their analysis, and have access to the same library of macros and permanent formats.

 

Does EG have that capability, and if it does, how does one go about setting it up?  I'm using SAS EG version 7.13.

 

Thanks

EG is a single-user tool. Don't expect a project file to survive being opened twice, if it's possible at all.

But EG is able to work with git as a versioning system for SAS codes.

We use EG with Microsoft Visual Studio / Team Foundation Server and that provides collaboration and version control capabilities but only for EG program files not projects. In theory it could be used for projects as well but we haven't tried that.

Hello @wjd3,

 

instead of "Collaboration" you would like to search for "Version Control", then you will find several matches on Google or support.sas.com

 

Probably, you would like to give an special look to GIT on SAS Enterprise Guide and some other docs:

Hope it helps

 

Kind regards,

Juan
