Saving a Spotfire file in a format compatible with previous versions

How can I save a Spotfire file in a version that can be opened by a previous version. I have TIBCO Spotfire Analyst 7.11.1 LTS HF-016, and I am sharing with some collaborators (I don't know their version, but I think it's >7), and when they open the file they get this error:


I think this is due to my version being more advanced than theirs, and I'd like to save in a format they can read, but I can't figure out how to do this.

Thanks very much in advance.

This kind of an issue can be seen if the user who created the analysis file, had the "SaveCompatibilityVersion" option set to "False", under Tools==>Administration Manager==>Group(which the user belongs to)==>Preferences==>Application==>ApplicationPerferences.

To open the file in the older versions without getting this error, the following steps should be performed. The file must then be re-saved in the current version (in which the file was originally created).


1) Log into Spotfire Analyst Client(current version where the analysis file was created) as an Administrator.

2) Click on Tools==>Administration Manager.

3) Select the Preferences tab.

4) Click on the group that the user(who created the report) belongs to.

5) Under the Preferences tab, expand "Application" and select "ApplicationPerferences".

6) On the right hand side, look for SaveCompatibilityVersion and set it to "True" or disable it. ==========

Now, save a copy of the file and open it in a supported older version. The file should open successfully.
