New Features for Spanning Backup for Salesforce: Multi-Object Restores & Granular Display of Metadata

If you’re a Salesforce admin or developer and want a faster, easier, more reliable way to restore your Salesforce data, Spanning listens – and delivers.

With Spanning Backup for Salesforce new feature releases, you now have a better way to restore your data, to populate Sandboxes, and to monitor metadata changes.

In many conversations with Salesforce developer and admins, we heard that Salesforce native restoration options are time-consuming and error-prone. Your time is valuable, and you need to make restoring multiple Object types faster and easier.

We’ve just released a new feature that enables you to restore multiple Object types in a single restore, both within the same org, and cross-org to any sandbox, developer or production org, simply by uploading a CSV file containing the 18 digit record IDs of any restorable Object type.  Imagine loading a specific set of test data into a sandbox, or rolling back a large set of data in your production org in one simple, easy process – instead of spending hours preparing data and painstakingly loading each Object type one at a time. You will also be able to download a CSV with errors, and view results ordered by error type, much as you can with other Spanning bulk restores.

You also wanted an easier way to understand and monitor changes to metadata – if there were new reports added, layouts changed, dashboards deleted – since your last backup.

Spanning Backup for Salesforce now enables you to view metadata in the backup batch details by components, including counts for changes (new, updated, deleted).


Our agile approach to development and our continuous “listen and learn” activities with Salesforce admins and developers, make Spanning the leader in enterprise-grade SaaS data protection.
