Who can use this capability
You must be a licensed sheet owner or admin to request a snapshot of your sheet.
Request a sheet snapshot
Request a snapshot when you need a recent backup copy of a sheet from a specific point in time.
- Select File > Activity Log.
- Adjust the Start Date and End Date as needed.
- Navigate to the specific change and select Request a Snapshot.
You will receive the data from the sheet as an Excel file. The file contains data and comments only.
Conditional formatting, attachments, notifications, cell history, and any formulas incompatible with Excel (column formulas, @row, @cell, cross sheet formulas, etc.) are not supported.
You can submit one snapshot request at a time on any given sheet. When the first request is complete, you can file an additional request.
