Today’s PMO directors are seeking the best solutions to protect their data in Microsoft Project for the Web—a system used by countless organizations to manage hundreds of projects at once. Much mission-critical data is stored in these project systems. Any mistake in data sharing, migration, or management can disrupt an organization’s operations. To reduce the risk of losing mission-critical data, Microsoft recommends using a third-party cloud backup system that automates Project for the Web backup processes and can recover and restore project data quickly.

FluentPro Backup also provides automated backup and restore for Microsoft Dataverse. You can set the frequency when the table data backup runs in the app. Afterward, you can perform full or granular backup when accidental deletion happens.

What is a backup version?

The backup version is a backup of the last changes made at a particular time. You can save the current data state as a version according to your schedule. It enables you to revert your Environment to a previous version if necessary.

Versions can make it easier to recover from mistakes. For example, if accidental changes are made, you can revert your particular project, group, or resource to an earlier version.
