SAS Studio: Help Center

What are tasks?

In SAS Studio, tasks provide a way for you to run some of the most commonly used analyses on your data without requiring you to write any SAS code yourself. Tasks generate SAS code and results based on the options that you select in the user interface.

Tasks include SAS System procedures from simple data listings to the most complex analytical procedures. SAS Studio is shipped with several predefined tasks. You can edit a copy of these predefined tasks in order to customize the tasks for your site.
