Bookmarks and Snapshots provide a means to return to a report's current state at a later date.
The difference between a report Bookmark and a Snapshot is as follows.
Allow you to save the drill paths and filter values you have currently applied to the report in order to reapply them to fresh data at a later date.
|Snapshots||Allow you to save the result set of your current report with the drill paths and filters you've currently applied. A snapshot becomes a static report, meaning that you can no longer interact with it, it has been designed to preserve a result set at a point in time to use for comparison later.|
