A lot a usable space is lost on the SAS Logon Manager web page. I find it useful to reuse part of it
in order to display Important/Urgent messages to the incoming users :
for example,maintenance scheduled with outage at < day, time>, system operation scheduled at etc.
I know it's not officially permitted but I have already modified the Logon HTML code , inside the deployed hierarchy of SAS Web App Server to allow this. It worked fine altough the content update process was risky and required editing manually a file on the midtier machine ...
Wouldn't it be nice to allow this kind of feature to SAS 9.4 admins, using an update channel well-devised and somewhat easy to use (for instance, a Stored Process with text fields and some little typographical enrichments to be selected optionally like Red colored text, bold font etc.) ? This would replicate the Message Of The Day (motd) broadcasting feature known for a long time on Unix systems or SAS-wise the (little-known) NEWS system option.
To illustrate my point, I've taken the liberty to take a caption of such a Logon modified page (courtesy of SAS Institute ; )
See picture above.
Thanks for considering this idea !
PS I've tagged this idea with SAS Studio even though it's broader actually
