How Do I Limit Auto-Add On Datto SaaS Protection/Backupify 2.0 for Office 365 Accounts?



How do I limit Auto-Add on Datto SaaS Protection/Backupify 2.0 for Office 365 accounts?


  • Datto SaaS Protection/Backupify for Office 365


The Auto-Add User Limit allows you to limit the number of seats automatically added to your Datto SaaS Protection/Backupify 2.0 for Office 365 account, letting you avoid surprise charges incurred by adding more seats than expected. 

Setting the Auto-Add limit

1. Click the Users tab on the Admin page to open seat management.

2. In the Set Auto-Add User Limit field, enter the maximum number of seats that can be added, then click the Set Limit button.

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.
