Save a scenario copy

Available in 23.4 and later versions

You can save a copy of a scenario, including its content, scheduling, and capacity planning, by taking a snapshot or exporting it as an image.

Take a snapshot

You can capture snapshots of a scenario at any time and use snapshots for comparison.

To take a snapshot of a scenario:

  1. From the PPM menu, click Open > Portfolio Management.
  2. In the upper-right corner, click What-if Analysis .
  3. From the What-if Analysis page, open a scenario for which you want to create a snapshot.
  4. On top-left of the page, click Take Snapshot.
  5. In the Create Snapshot page, provide a name for the snapshot.
  6. Click Done.

    The snapshot preserves a copy of the scenario. You can compare a snapshot with other snapshots or scenarios to see what is the impact of different invest plans so as to determine an optimal scenario. For details, see Compare scenarios.

    The entire content and graphs present within the scenario are exported to the image file.
