    Cell View includes these:
      • One-Time or Scheduled Backup (configuration settings)
      • Started Date (date the backup was started)
      • Backup Type (ADD)
      • Status (in progress, completed, canceled or expired)
      • Object Total (total amount of objects within backup)
      • Records Total (total amount of records within the backup)
      • Backup Size (total size of the backup)
      • Export Button (the ability for users to export/download backup on their local machine)

      Export Backup Data:

    • When the export begins, you can see progress within the Progress Bar here:
    • progress_bar_backup

    You will receive an email and link to download the export, or you can navigate to the Exports section within the side navigation of the dashboard to download the export format by clicking the dark blue “DOWNLOAD” button.

    * This is a Paid Feature
    The Schedules Tab enables you to select how often, the timezone, and the start time of a backup to automatically run, based on current backup configurations for objects selected. In the screenshot, this schedule is disabled because it is on the “Sample” plan.
