There would be nice if you can display a message/show confirmation dialog after clicking on "Run process flow" in SAS Enterprise Guide, something like "Are you sure you want to run process flow?". It sometimes happens accidentally to click on "Run process flow" and then I have to stop all the tasks.

I am using SAS EG version 7.13 HF5 ( (64-bit).


Thank you!

Is this something that could be toggled in the options menu? I could see how some people would like this, but others find it inconvenient or annoying.

Yes, right there I would expect to find an option like this; for me (and I hope not just for me) it would be very useful, but I admit others would find it annoying.

There are no plans to implement this, but there are a couple of methods you can use today.


You can define a Project Prompt (see the SAS Enterprise Guide online help) and associate it with one or more of the tasks in your flow.  This will cause EG to display that prompt before you run the flow.  You can even associate a macro variable response with a Condition (again, see the online help) to decide whether to continue running that flow.


Or, you can use this custom task to display a message at any point in the process flow.
