Create and Use
You can create a snapshot from within a session and open it from the homepage.
Save a Snapshot
You can either save all datasets in the current session as a snapshot, or compose a DataChat sentence to select specific datasets.
You can save one snapshot in each session. If you already created a snapshot in the session and save the current snapshot with a new name, the current snapshot is saved with the new name and replaces the former snapshot. If you save with the same name, you are prompted to either overwrite with the same name—updating the former snapshot with the current one—or cancel and save with a different name.
From within your current session, select Save in the sidebar. The Save form opens.
- Select Snapshot.
- Enter a name for your new snapshot.
- Optionally, select the force overwrite check box to overwrite an existing snapshot with the same name.
- Click Submit.
To build a DataChat sentence, enter in the chat box:
Save the current session as a snapshot <name>
To save specific datasets from your session, enter in the chat box:
Save the current session as a snapshot <name> adding the datasets <datasets>
Rename a Snapshot
To rename a snapshot, select Snapshots in the sidebar of the homepage.
- Select the snapshot to rename.

Open a Snapshot
To use an existing snapshot in a new session:
- From the homepage, select Snapshots in the sidebar.
- Double-click the snapshot you'd like to open.
- A new session opens and loads the datasets contained in the snapshot.
To use an existing snapshot from within an existing session:
Click Load from the sidebar.
Click on the snapshot from the Snapshots section. Or click "load data from my snapshots" to look for the existing snapshot.
The datasets contained in the snapshot load within the session.
Or, enter in the chat box:
Load data from the snapshot <snapshot name>.
Delete a Snapshot
To delete a snapshot from the homepage:
Select Snapshots in the sidebar of the homepage.
