Update your Saved Favourites

Once you have saved your own Favourites you then have the option to Update them to keep any changes.

  • Update will overwrite the current Favourite you have run whereas 
  • Save will create a new copy and not affect the original Favourite, like "Save as" in Excel


Update also lets you change the Favourite Name, who it is shared with and any scheduled email settings.
