A Snapshot is a user query saved for reuse. This allows complicated or frequently used search queries to be reused. A Snapshot can be shared with other users. If it is published, it can be accessed directly by other users via the Navigation Menu. You can manage your Snapshots with the User Function My Profile-> My Limbas -> Snapshot. You create a Snapshot in the Record List of a table. After a user query is created, save it as a Snapshot with Tools->Save (Further details see Snapshot). Your ADMIN can also create Snapshots and publish them for common use.
