You Asked, We Listened – Powerful New Upgrades to Spanning Backup for Salesforce

It’s now even easier for customers to restore their Salesforce data.

We have exciting news for our Spanning Backup for Salesforce customers. Based on input we received in numerous customer interviews and Salesforce MVP use case chats, we developed new functionality to help you and your teams do more, faster.

  1. Changes made more visible: View and monitor changes that occur on the four most important items in your Salesforce environment. Simply configure the Spanning Backup for Salesforce dashboard to see object types and the number of records in each type that have been added, updated, or deleted since the previous backup. Learn more here.
  2. Restores made easier: Introducing the Universal Restore Button! We like to say that backup is one thing, but restore is everything. Making it easy to get lost or deleted data back into its proper place quickly and easily is key. That’s why we made restoring data even easier. Now you have one button in the left sidebar that automatically activates when single-item restores are possible. Enabling the Universal Restore Button will help you (or users, if enabled) to perform on-page single item restores for more objects with less setup time. After you install the upgrade package, to get the Button you’ll need to perform the steps on pages 19-22 in the Spanning Backup for Salesforce Installation Guide. This Knowledgebase article will explain how to use the Universal Restore Button.
  3. Quick and easy restores for permanently deleted items: Restores are now enabled for permanently deleted items – these can be automatically restored with their related records intact. If you’ve ever loaded data back into Salesforce, you know the process of relating records back together can be extremely difficult. Spanning now makes it easy by allowing you to restore deleted data directly back into Salesforce with all its related data. Spanning’s restore process will automatically take care of inserting data back into Salesforce in the right order. It’s an undo button for deleted data – even if it’s after the 90 days limit Salesforce sets for its data retention (see the Salesforce Knowledge Article).

To get the goodness, all you need to do is install an upgrade package – for the simple steps, see here. If you’re not yet a Spanning Backup for Salesforce customer, start a free trial today, and see for yourself why Spanning is the leader in backup and restore for Salesforce.
