Adding SAS Studio Snippets Subfolders

[ Edited ]

I have been using SAS Studio for almost a year, and I have acumulated quite a few (over 50) snippets.  It has become quite a mess having them all in one folder.  I see that the buit in snippets folder has sub folders, and I would like to do the same thing in the "My Snippets" folder. 

 

I have done many searches online and have not found any answers to how to do this.  I have managed to create sub folders under tasks by moving a task from the buit in list, to the "My" list.  This did not work when I tried to do the same from the buit in snippets.  I then went into the JSON for the snippets library and tried to edit it in the same way that the Task list has been modified to add a sub folder.  But that did not seem to do anything.

 

Hopefully someone has a way this can be done, even if it is a bit technical.  As I accumulate more snippets I would like someway to organize them.

Re: Adding SAS Studio Snippets Subfolders

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, it was a design decision to only have one level as we didn't think that people would create that many snippets. Hindsight is better than foresight in this case as we've realized that is not the case. While not a solution for you in the short-term, this is being addressed in a future release. You'll be able to create as many levels of folders as you want.
