Previously I worked with SAS VA 7.1 and there was a 'Imports' tab on the left pane (together with Objects and Data), which allowed me to import pages, items or objects from different reports.
Now I have SAS VA 8.2 and in the left pane I have Objects, Data and Outline. How do I import report items in SAS VA 8.2?
In 8.3, we have a new feature called object templates. These enable you to save the visual settings for an object as a template. After you save a template, you can use it in any report. Object templates do not contain the data assignments for the object, so you will need to set those up manually.
There are also custom graph templates in 8.3, for graphs that you create in the Graph Builder. You can import those into any report.
Including data in shared objects is something the dev team is looking into for the future.
