"Supernode" or "processflow within a processflow" in SAS EG?

[ Edited ]

When working with query builders in SAS EG, process flows tend to grow incredibly long and messy.

 

In SPSS Modeller there's a feature called "Supernode" which I would describe as "A processflow within a processflow". This is great because it allows for grouping of all these incremental steps that doesn't add value to the visual overview.

 

Is there any type of similar feature in EG? Or at least a decent workaround?

 

 

Example attached: The typical problem is that each processed step is very small: if I want top 5 hitters per baseball team I need TWO small steps: first use "Rank" and then a "Filter/sort" for sorting. I would like to group these two steps into ONE "Supernode".

 

Grateful for input!

I don't think it's possible - the closest you're going to get would be to export the code from each of the nodes in your "supernode" and then paste them into a single code node which would effectively become the supernode.

The answer I Anticipated, but not the one I hoped for =)

 

 

The visualisation feature in SAS EG is really great, but would improved A LOT by a feature like this.
