Feature Request for Backup Schedule Customization

avisos shared this idea 3 months ago
Under Consideration

My name is Pablo, and I work as a support technician at Nicalia. I would like to propose a suggestion to enhance the flexibility in backup scheduling, based on both my needs and those of other users.

Currently, the "Every 12 Hours" option in the scheduling feature allows for running a backup job twice a day, but the predefined times don't align precisely with my requirements. My suggestion is as follows:

Enable the possibility to schedule a daily backup job with two specific time slots, for example, at 06:00 and 23:00. This would provide greater flexibility to accommodate the server's low-activity hours and optimize storage space usage.

I understand there is an "Every 12 Hours" option, but it doesn't fully meet my needs as the predefined times do not align with the specific hours I am seeking.

Furthermore, having the ability to set two specific time slots for a daily backup job would reduce the necessity of creating multiple backup jobs, thus minimizing storage space usage and associated costs.

I appreciate your attention to this suggestion, and I am confident that this enhancement would be beneficial for many users seeking increased customization in backup scheduling.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
