The Tip of the Day feature in all versions of JMP is nice, and l have picked up a number of useful shortcuts from reading through them all. However, what I would like to do is to include in this list some company specific tips too.
Has anyone done this? I'm interested to hear how you acheived it.
So far I have identified that the tips are HTML files stored in (for v13, Windows 64-bit system) C:\Program Files (x86)\SAS\JMP\13\Tip of the Day. However, I also discovered that as a standard user I cannot change the contents of this folder. Does this mean that my only recourse is to ask our IT department to deploy?
I've thought about doing this but haven't gotten any further than that. On our company's installation, we do an auto-install on C:\program files\sas\jmp13\, even though it is a 64bit version and even though we have the x86 program files folder on our machines.
I sort of have write access to these folders (a few key strokes that probably not all JMP users at my company knows about), and I've just checked that if I do something like copying tip62.htm to tip62 - copy.htm (default windows copied file name), it doesn't work, but if I call the new file tip63.htm it works fine. Presumably it is looking for prev / next # based on # of htm files. Because of this quasi write acess I would have to ask our IT dept to deploy if we wanted to do this, unless someone knows a way around it.
For what it is is worth, one of the first tips I would put in there is to highlight the rows->row selection-> name selection in column. It creates a new column which you can name whatever you want, with one value for the selected rows and another value unselected rows. Someone pointed this out to me a few months ago; it is very handy for creating buckets, especially from select where() functions or selecting points from plots.
