Backups that stay accessible in Smartsheet!
“Always backup your data” is a phrase we have all come across and what an important phrase it is.
Whilst Smartsheet’s own backup facility allows you to request a backup from Smartsheet and receive your data (sheet result values only) in an Excel dump format, not all functionality within the data is kept
How useful is it? Do we all use the facility? Probably not as much as we should.
Smarter Business Processes have developed a “HOT” Backup Solution which is Smarter! Our Smarter Backups feature is sold within SmarterControls4Smartsheet or as a stand alone feature See more
How does Smarter Backups work?
Part of our Front end Platform, which sees SmarterControls4Smartsheet at the core, Smarter Backups provides an end user wizard which will walk you through configuring a scheduled backup. Your choices include which of your folders to backup; the frequency of snapshots (daily, weekly or monthly) and the number of generations required. All backups will have a date/time stamp in the name for ease of selecting the correct data to restore.
Smarter Backups retains the data in Smartsheet which keeps all formulae in place, all hyperlinks working, all cross sheet references live, rollup data to reports and dashboards current and the images are added to the main navigation pane in Smartsheet for easy access.
Smarter Backups runs on a scheduled basis, so no extra intervention is required. Keeping it simple and reliable. SBP Consultants recommend using Smarter Backups before running features such as Smarter Column Naming, as a precautionary measure
