Bookmarks and Snapshots provide a means to return to a report's current state at a later date.


The three options available are:

Save As

Allows you to essentially save a copy of your current report, with the drill paths and filter values you have currently applied as pre-defined (not user prompt) filters.


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.

In order to use the Bookmark and/or Snapshot functionality in Yellowfin, you will need to ensure the required permission is enabled by completing the following:
