Hi Marco,

It is not possible to save parameter status from a mobile app today. This will be looked at in the future.

Can I save my parameters from desktop? Is this the answer to what-if analysis?

thanks in advance,

No, you can't save parameters from your desktop either. This will be looked at for a future release. Some functionality that supports what-if analysis: parameters attached to controls and scenario analysis and goal seeking in the VA explorer.

Hope this helps!
