Snapshots

Server 2012 - How actually do you setup snapshots to work, is there an automated way to do those, and also to delete old snapshots.

Do you have to 'apply' snapshots ?

Are there any precautions to be aware of using snapshots ?

The only time i used snapshots was before installing software.  Snapshots are not to be confused as backups and are treated as restore points much like system restore in windows 7 etc.
