The Challenge of Configuring Backup Plans for Many Endpoints

Configuring backup plans on many endpoints can be challenging for a few reasons. First of all, configuring backup plans may require knowledge of a specific set of configurations. For example, backup plans may need to be configured for different types of data, each with their own unique settings. Memorizing all these settings and applying them manually might be hard for the admin.

Secondly, manually configuring backup plans on a large number of endpoints can be time-consuming and resource-intensive. This may even lead to inconsistencies and errors.

Also, frequent reviews and updates need to be done to ensure business continuity and compliance. Making changes to the backup plans manually can be challenging when dealing with a large number of endpoints.

The Importance of Backup Templates in MSP360 Managed Backup

The Backup Templates feature in MSP360 Managed Backup was created to address our customers’ need for simplified backup management at scale.

Backup Templates is an MSP360 Managed Backup feature designed to simplify backup configuration routines on multiple computers. With Backup Templates, you can create/import, edit, and delete custom backup configuration templates to apply them to selected computers, selected companies, or all companies and computers under management in bulk.

This feature can be beneficial from a business perspective for a few reasons:

  • Saves time and resources: Backup Templates feature allows businesses to remotely deploy software and updates to multiple devices at once, saving time and resources that would be required to manually install software on each device.
  • Consistency and standardization: With Backup Templates, businesses can ensure that all devices have the same software and updates installed, reducing the risk of compatibility issues or security vulnerabilities caused by outdated software.
  • Improved productivity: Backup Templates can help improve productivity by minimizing downtime caused by software installation or updates. IT staff can remotely install software and updates during off-hours or when users are not actively using their devices.
  • Centralized management: Backup Templates feature allows businesses to manage software deployment from a central location, providing better visibility and control over the software installed on their devices.


Overall, Backup Templates feature in MSP360 eliminates the need to create or edit backup plans in bulk manually and can help businesses streamline their processes, reduce costs, and improve productivity and security.
