Years ago and a seemingly far galaxy away, I wrote about how to modify 9.1.3 to start Enterprise Guide users in a different location for the File folder. By default, the user only can access their personal SAS Temporary File.
Why change this? I would prefer to use a central location to access files and share between applications. For instance, I would like to directly open the .sas files for my stored processes. Also I am creating a project prompt that allows me the ability to select a file as part of the process. The file selection BROWSE window starts at the location specified in the File Navigation properties.
Therefore it's time to modify this, all I need to do is complete a 3 step process as detailed in the image.
- Access the Workspace Server Properties
- Open the Advanced Options Interface
- Change the File Navigation
