[Zone] What are NetSpot Snapshots and how to use them?

Snapshots are designed to help you monitor the changes that occur in your wireless network setup in a certain zone as the time passes. It is very practical to scan a zone, make adjustments to the utilized equipment and environment and then rescan the same zone in a new snapshot to see if the signal readings improved.

Now let’s see what you can do with snapshots in your projects.

  • To make your first snapshot: Zones and their snapshots are located in the left sidebar of NetSpot. Your first snapshot is created automatically when you perform your first scan. It is automatically named according to the date of creation, e.g. “#1 Oct 11, 2023”.
  • To add a new snapshot: Right-click anywhere in the snapshot section of the sidebar and click the “Add New Snapshot” option. A “#2” snapshot name will appear, and you can begin your next scan.

  • To view or compare snapshots: Simply click on the name of each snapshot and you will be able to view all heatmaps associated with each scan.
  • Use the right-click menu to rename, duplicate, or delete a snapshot.
  • To edit a snapshot right-click its name and select Edit. You can remove or relocate existing data points, as well as add new ones to the snapshot.
  • To save zone snapshots: Snapshots are automatically saved with your Project, so simply go up to the menu bar and select File > Save.

Note: NetSpot Home allows you to create two snapshots per zone, NetSpot PRO — 50 snapshots per zone, and with NetSpot Enterprise you can have an unlimited number of snapshots in each zone.
