Hide default folder "My folder" in SAS VA

Hi,

Anyone knows how to hide users folders "My folder" from the user when the user browse for report in report viewer. I want to hide such that the users are unable to see their respective personal folder.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi XinYong,

 

Is there a specific reason why you want to hide the users "My folder"? If your VA users are also using other SAS applications hiding them could have a impact to them using other SAS clients.

 

Kind Regards,

Michelle

Hi XinYong,

 

As I mentioned before, it depends on whether your users use other SAS client applications and save content in their My Folder area. It also depends on how you plan to hide it, deleting it is not advised. You might find the following references to help with your impact question:
