I am learning Enterprise Guide and desperately trying to avoid command line Linux SAS.
Three things come up and I am looking for super simple workarounds for each in EG (Enterprise Guide).
1) removing files
2) sending emails
3) running chron jobs
Anyone want to share ways to achieve these in EG?
Your pal forever.

Easy to do.
1) If the files are SAS datasets, you can use PROC DATASETS. You can also do it directly through the GUI.
2) Right click on what you want to send and one of the choices is to send e-mail. Once in that task, you can add other items.
3) Click on "File" and then "Schedule a project".
also, there is a forum devoted to EGuide. That is a better place for this question.

The email and scheduling are dead simple, as Doc describes.
An additional option for file management are the "External Files" functions, which can be run from inside a data step. A few examples:
Returns the number of members in a directory
Creates an external directory
Deletes an external file or an empty directory
