Searching and sorting

The Backup Status screen displays all Datto devices associated with this account. You can search and sort by view, by agent, or by device. You can also enter a device or agent name in the search bar at the upper right. 

Standard view allows you to access each agent directly from this page and shows an information table for each device. Click here for a full description of standard view.

Compressed view is useful when you are managing a large fleet of Datto devices. It increases the number of devices shown per page but truncates the amount of at-a-glance information for each device. Click a device name for an expanded view. Click here for a full description of compressed view.
