Spanning Backup for Salesforce

Protect Salesforce data and metadata with enterprise-grade, automated backups, and point-in-time restore.




Spanning Backup for Salesforce works in Salesforce, so there’s no easier way to back up and restore your Salesforce data – from user-generated reports and email templates to objects, files, and metadata. Everything is backed up daily and always available for fast point-in-time, granular restoration whenever data is overwritten or deleted.

Set It and Forget It

Enjoy peace of mind knowing all your Salesforce data is automatically backed up every day, at a time you specify. That includes custom objects, metadata, attachments, customizations, and Chatter messages, so if your original data is overwritten or deleted in error, you won’t have to worry about trying to recreate what you lost.  

Spanning Backup for Salesforce also supports backups on demand. For example, administrators can take a snapshot of Salesforce data prior to data imports or before applying customizations. Admins and developers can capture a point-in-time backup of the entire org prior to making large data or customization changes.

Get What You Need

Restore Salesforce data and metadata any way you need:

  • Metadata restore of 10 metadata types, including Reports, Dashboards, and Objects
  • Point-in-time restore of previous versions of records in two simple steps
  • Single-item restore, available anywhere you see a Universal Restore button
  • Bulk item restore to restore some or all items from a particular point in time
  • Deleted item restore of permanently deleted items (in order and with related records intact)
  • Secure restore, which enforces field-level security by performing restores as the user who’s logged in
  • Cross-org restore, with the ability to send backup data to another Salesforce org or Sandbox
  • Multi-Object restores for same-org and cross-org, saving significant time for populating sandboxes or recovering from data disasters while preserving relationships

In addition, export capabilities include data export from any previous backup with the option to select items to export.

Have It Your Way

Use the customizable dashboard to monitor your daily Salesforce backups and quickly review their status, including new and updated data, changes to metadata, and any errors or warnings that may need attention. You can also monitor and control the number of API calls used by Spanning Backup each day.

Enjoy complete confidence in your backups with a detailed, actionable status history you can use to monitor backup activity. It comes complete with guidance on how to easily resolve backup errors, and every action is recorded in an immutable audit log.
