Feature Request - Notification if no backups in X days

Veeam Logoby NashBrydges » Sun Jan 04, 2015 5:15 pm

Hi All,

I'd like to see a notification warning if the scheduled backup task has not been run in the last X days, and have the ability to set the value for what X days should be. Ideally these notifications would appear both in the taskbar as well as an email sent however if the future plan is to integrate this product with Veeam B&R then perhaps the plan is to include those email notification processes.

Hi, I am pretty sure this functionality is already in beta as well, because I clearly remember myself proofing the corresponding warning message ;) Thanks!

Nash, Anton

As far as I know, the red X comes up on the notification tray after you missed the first time a backup schedule. It won't disappear until you have a successful backup again. But I think Nash wants to be able to "choose" the date when an error appears...

Nash, can you clarify if my understanding is correct? You would like to have a possibility to get an error(like we have today, in the tray icon) but want to be able to choose to get it after X days? For the email notification and stuff, this is a common requested feature and we will probably look into that for v2.

Thanks for your feedback

Mike

Hi Mike,

You're correct. The ability for the user to select when the warning appears.

Hmm, I remember proofing "after X days" warning message. I understood this goes into yellow warning stripe in the Control Panel.
