Menu: Snaps

Using the Snaps Menu functions to take snapshots of selections and boards


The Snaps Menu allows session facilitators to automatically capture the contents of VFE Boards for later distribution to participants or for use in follow-up presentations. Snaps are saved in a special “CCSCards” folder in your computer’s default Documents folder.


 

> Current View

Takes a Snapshot of whatever is currently showing on the VFE screen.

> Participants

Takes an individual Snapshot of each Participant’s selection frame. The snap includes the participant’s name and coloured icon. Each snap is stored as a separate file in png format using a time stamp and the participant’s name (eg. 2021-10-25_11-51-15 Participant peter piper.png). This function works regardless of which Board is currently being viewed.

> Participants Board

Takes an individual Snapshot of the entire Participants Board. Snap is stored as a separate file in png format using a time stamp and the words Participant Board (eg. 2021-10-25_11-50-25 Participant Board.png). This function works regardless of which Board is currently being viewed.

> Big Board

Takes an individual Snapshot of the entire Big Board — everything within the Big Board’s purple frame.  Snap is stored as a separate file in png format using a time stamp and the words Big Board (eg. 2021-10-25_11-50-25 Big Board.png). This function works regardless of which Board is currently being viewed.

> All

Automatically takes a Snap of all of the above views.
