How do I provision SharePoint sites using the Site Management page in Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0?


  • Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 for Office 365


Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 for Office 365 backs up SharePoint Team sites and Communication sites.

Provisioning SharePoint site backups

When you first provision your account, Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 will detect and list both SharePoint sites and Team SharePoint sites, but will not automatically begin backing them up. You must manually select which sites to back up.

1. From the Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 dashboard, click the Seat Management tab, then select Sites from the drop-down menu.

2. From the Manage Sites section of the page, click the Status dropdown to manually enable or disable backups for each site by setting it to be ActivePaused, or Unprotected. You can also click the AUTO ADD slider to enable automatic backups for all net new sites.

AUTO ADD only affects net new sites; you must manually turn on backups for existing sites in the Manage Sites pane.
