Before Data collection begins, a backup and restore policy should be in place to help guide the restoration of data in case of Data loss. While all are aware of this eventuality, most don’t enjoy doing this and often push documentation “backup” to the bottom of their to-do lists.

Check out this video on how Document360 takes care of all your Backup needs with respect to your knowledge Base!

Why do we need a Backup?

Normally there are different people working together on either making changes on the same documentation, embedding videos, editing content, etc. There are a lot of chances that the content may be changed without someone else’s knowledge, articles could get deleted, moved and in such scenario’s, there is a possibility of changes being published without the knowledge of the rest of the team as well. Hence having a backup (complete copy of the final reviewed and approved KB) is extremely beneficial. You can restore your documentation to some normalcy in times of emergency using your backup copy.

Leave all your worries about the data loss. We have the perfect solution for your need.
