12. On the User Management screen, choose Select which accounts you would like to back up to manually add users from the list. Choose Upload CSV to import a spreadsheet of users. After selecting users, click Save.

You can also add users with additional selection options once the account is set up, so it is possible to move on without selecting any users at this point.

Trial accounts are limited to a max of 500 users. Attempting to upload a CSV with more than 500 users will result in a failure.

13. The Backupify setup process is now complete. Click Finish to exit the wizard and go to the Backupify dashboard. Backupify will take initial backups, and G Suite is now protected. Visit the Backupify 2.0 for G Suite knowledge base for additional support.

The time zone in Backupify is set to GMT by default. This setting is not configurable within Backupify.
