Accounts upgraded to Datto SaaS Protection/Backupify 2.0

Accounts updated from legacy Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection to Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 will still have legacy reports available for scheduling. Still, they will no longer provide useful information, as the legacy platform is no longer backing up the domain. For upgraded accounts, be sure to use the 2.0 reporting, as shown in figure 1.
