Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection for Office 365: How do I set the Auto-Add User Limit?



How do I set the Auto-Add User Limit?


  • Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 for Office 365


The Auto-Add user limit allows you to limit the number of seats automatically added to your Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection for Office 365 account, letting you avoid surprise charges incurred by adding more seats than expected. 

Setting the Auto-Add limit

1. Click Seat Management and the Users tab on the Status page.

Seat limit alerts

  • If Auto-Add is enabled: seats beyond the limit number will not be added to the service and no alert will be sent. 
  • If users are added manually: adding a single user over the limit will trigger an error message in the GUI. Adding users beyond the set limit by CSV will trigger a failure notification in an email.
