Overview

The Live Activities page of the inSync Management Console provides a consolidated view of the backup and restore activities currently in progress for both user devices and cloud applications. From the Live Activities page, you can:

  • Search for user-specific activities
  • Cancel a live activity
  • Pause and resume the auto-refresh of live activities status
  • Apply filters to view specific activities

The status of live activities is refreshed every 5 minutes. inSync cancels restore requests older than 30 days and removes them from the Live Activities page. Information about such auto-canceled requests is available in Restore Activity report.
