    Would like import/export option for backup app

    Asked by intelliplans on September 23, 2014 at 01:32 PM
    We are seeking backups wherein we keep ourselves.  The backup you currently have is still on your system(s).  That being the case, it makes no difference at all since the initial files as well as backups are on YOUR system.  we prefer to have the backups on our own local computers.

    The requested feature is currently still open and was already assigned to one of our developer.

    We cannot provide you with a time frame for completion, but we will update you here once we have status update available.

    It is now possible to import/export/recover/delete back ups. To import, just upload your previously downloaded back up file by clicking "Recover from a Back-up file" button.

    Please let us know if you have any issues.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Alp

    Great job on this.  Congrats to you and all those who worked on this.

    The backup works fine. 

    A small request for downloading the local backup:

    The download file name should correspond to the form name.
