Save and share a scenario

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. You can also share a scenario with others to collaborate on your what-if scenario.

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 the impact of different invest plans so as to determine an optimal scenario. For details, see Compare scenarios.
