HOW TO: Collaboration in Report Building SAS Viya 8.1 Visual Analytics

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone,

 

My colleauge and I were tasked with working on the same report which we are to build in SAS Viya 8.1 Visual Analytics. I was looking for any way to share the report so we could work on it simultaneously OR I work on one page of the report and she woks on the other, but found no options. I was wondering if there is a way to collaborate simultaneously on one report (Think of working on a Google Document where more than 1 user can edit realtime). If that is not possible, is there a way where i can work on the report on my own and she does the same in a different report and then we merge her work into my report? Any advice or direction would be appreciated

Cheers,

Hi SASKiwi,

Thanks for the response. 

 

I was wondering if you have had any experience linking reports into a report? What we came up with was using links to link to the different report and having the main report act as like a landing page. Let me know if you have tried something like that in the past

 

Cheers

I don't think there is any way to do this reliably. You could possibly take a copy of the report and have the other person work on a different tab to what you are working on. But you wouldn't be able to make any changes to the data sources in the copy because there would be no way of adding those back to the original version. You would have to restrict changes in the copy to just laying out and configuring the report objects in that tab.
