In EG 7.x, when a project was run, the results were automatically displayed. In EG 8.x, this feature was turned off. SAS Technical Support indicated this was design feature to improve performance. Although, this would be nice to be able to be controlled by the preferences. Many of our users kick off their projects to run and are not necessarily monitoring it or have the 'Submission Status' displayed, so there isn't any visual indication that the project actually ran. In the past, they used the displayed results as this indication.
The idea is to allow the user to set in their preferences whether or not to display the results within a project. Currently, they don't have this option and they are not happy this functionality was removed in 8.x.
