Working with Saved Sessions

Previously saved sessions can be selected, inspected, modified, and shared with collaborators. The saved session entries can be saved locally or in the cloud. Sharing a session with a collaborator is done automatically through uploading the saved session entry to the cloud.

A list of some simple actions that can be applied to a saved session entry:

  • Single-click the saved session entry from the Sessions list to select it.

  • Right-click a selected session entry to load the context menu. The context menu provides multiple options for managing, exporting, and modifying the saved session entry.

  • Double-click the saved session entry from the Sessions list to open it in a new tab.

  • Use the UI buttons next to a saved session entry to Manage Users (cloud session entries only), Share, and Delete saved session entries.

  • Use the UI buttons at the very top to Import sessions archives or to access previously Shared Sessions entries.
