Tips for further usage

  • The cloud agent synchronises with Microsoft 365 every 24 hours, starting from the moment when the organisation is added to the backup service. If you add or remove a user, group, or site, you will not see this change in the backup console immediately. To forcibly synchronise the cloud agent with Microsoft 365, select the organisation on the Microsoft 365 page, and then click Refresh.
  • If you applied a backup plan to the All users, All groups, or All sites group, the newly added items will be included in the backup only after the synchronisation.
  • According to Microsoft policy, after a user, group, or site is removed from Office 365 GUI, it remains available for a few days via the API. During these days, the removed item is inactive (greyed out) in the backup console and is not backed up. When the removed item becomes unavailable via the API, it disappears from the backup console. Its backups (if any) can be found at Backups Storage tab > Cloud Application Backups.
