    Hi,

    I'm using v17 on my MacBook Pro with M1 Pro and macOS Monterey.
    My VM is running macOS Monterey as well.
    Problem: the snapshot option is nowhere to be seen. Anybody here having the same issue?

    Using snapshots is not currently available on a VM running macOS Monterey. If you need to use snapshots, I would recommend running a different OS from within Parallels.
    Best Regards

    Agree this would be a useful feature.

    Right now I "fake" this but shutting down the VM and then dragging and dropping it to make a copy which I then give a meaningful name to. This is very inefficient etc, plus uses a huge amount of disk, given it is a full copy each time.

    is there an estimated timeline for when snapshots will be supported for macOS guests on M1/M2 hosts?
