Adding an app to your backup is a quick & easy with Pro Backup. To do so click on New App in the menu bar and click on the app that you would to start backing up.

This will bring you to the first step of the setup process which consists out of 4 steps:

1. Connect

In the first step you need to log in to the account of your app in order to authorize Pro Backup. If you are already logged in to the app, then you will be redirected to a webpage of that app.

On this authorization page you will need to approve Pro Backup to have access to your account.

2. Scope

In this step you can select which workspaces you want to include in the scope of your backup. Some apps do not structure in workspaces or teams, in which case we will hide this step and go straight to the next step.

For some apps (e.g. HubSpot) this step will be skipped as we will automatically back up the whole account.

3. Google Drive

In this step you can choose whether you want to enable the sync to Google Drive. When we back up your app, we store all data and metadata with heavy encryption to our servers. But, to make your backed up data even more accessible to you, we also offer the option to sync a light copy of your backup to a secured Google Drive folder.

This option is completely optional and can be skipped.

4. Confirm

On the last step you confirm and start your first back up. Depending on the size of your account this process can take up to a few hours. You will receive an email as soon as the first backup is complete.
