Backup / Restore Function


One thing that scares me the most with QBO is there is no backup or restore option. In cases where I need to update a lot of information and a mistake gets made, or a bulk update of data is done and it overwrites data it is essential to have a restore function to correct any mistakes or data loss.

Unfortunately Intuit expect you to pay for the advanced version if you actually want this 'feature' Rolling back to a time would be much needed in all versions. So many users accidently changing something or not realising their mistake which can lead to even more issues. More time wasted.

Hi HM2019, thanks for your contribution to QuickBooks Idea Exchange. Please note that a backup and restore function is available in QuickBooks Online Advanced. Backups save everything on your chart of accounts and you can schedule these to be automatic or do one-time backups. If you have any further queries on this, please come and chat with our support team

An option to schedule and/or manually download backups locally onto computer would be very useful.
