Forcing backups before a laptop is shut down

Forcing backups before log off or shutdown

As an administrator, you can force a backup from a laptop when a user is shutting it down or is logging off. In such cases, the laptop will be shut down, or the user will be logged off only after backup is complete.

Note: This functionality is managed through profiles and not at an individual user level.


To trigger a backup from user devices before log off or shutdown

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage > Profiles.
  2. Click the profile that you want to modify.
  3. Under the Laptop Backup Schedule tab, in the Laptop Backup Schedule area, click Edit. The Edit Profile​ window appears.


  4. Select Backup at logoff / shutdown.
  5. Click Save.
