Where a snapshot option can be used?

  • A snapshot can be used after any modifications to your code.

Why this option is used?

  • This option is used when you are making modifications that you are unsure of and might not want.

Advantages of using this option?

  • The advantage is that you can simply fall back onto a previous snapshot if the desired changes didn't work out as you wanted.
