I like the idea of having three columns to reduce the white space. Categorizing them would be useful too.

Thanks Michelle! Would you or others in the community know a logical grouping / categorization?

Keep as is (keep current order), but add 'load more items' for the unanswered questions' section

Hi Art, Lainie here - thanks for the feedback. Do you have any big reservations if we do something like Michele suggests? My main reason for trying something different is to give more room on the home page. I'll keep the poll open a bit.

I'll see if that is possible (to add a 'more' to unanswered questions). I have noticed a lot of people click on the "More" button for recent activity below it.  Thanks for all the feedback - it really does help.

Lainie: I misunderstood the question, but my suggestion still holds.

I have absolutely no problem with Michele's suggestion other than some fine tuning. I suggest removing SAS from all of the headings, a few wording changes, split one into a couple of different categories, and then show them alphabetically.  For example:


Business Intelligence

Management & Administration


Health Care

  • Drug Development
  • Health Care Related

Okay, guys, I've spoken with some SAS experts here and gave this a go:

If it needs to be tweaked.. just start a discussion and we'll go from there. Art: I couldn't remove "SAS" from the headings..

With the long headings I, for one, found that to be more difficult than a single ordered list. If you can't remove SAS from the headings, or shorten some of the names, showing the list in 3 columns may NOT be the best way to go.

BTW: Since I brought up the trial page of group headings, I can't get rid of it! But I do like the new(?) view all unanswered questions link!

Agree that 3 columns is difficult to read with the long headings, especially on an iPad which is what I tend to use.
