Now, you can enter ideas directly in the online Support Communities—much in the same way you ask questions or participate in online discussions. Just look for the lightbulb icon and the "Create an idea" link in the action box of any community.
Every idea is viewed by a SAS Technical Support consultant. Other SAS experts within the company may even choose to comment or ask more questions to better understand your proposal as it relates to the product or solution. In addition, ideas can be viewed by your peers, who can comment or vote the idea up or down to affect the overall score.
For example, in the SAS Procedures community, logged-in participants have the ability to create, view and vote on ideas. At the time they enter the idea, the item is immediately available for both comments and voting.
SAS still has the collaborative SASware Ballot Community where customers can vote and comment on ideas. This landing site also contains more information about the ballot including additional how-to documentation and FAQs. If you have an idea that does not correspond to the current list of online support commuity topics, simply go to the SASware Ballot Community, submit an idea and "tag" it with an appropriate word or phrase.
