Feature Request: Schedule Calendar

Veeam Logoby David_P » Fri Apr 29, 2016 9:03 am

Hi,
I logged this with support, they said the feature isn't currently available, but log it here and hopefully it will get picked up....

Can we please have a scheduling calendar within B&R. At the moment every time we have a bank holiday I have to remember to disable the tape backup job in advance, and then I have to remember to log in remotely on the bank holiday to re-enable the backup job so it kicks in for the return to work.

The only option support could suggest at the moment was using Powershell, but that will still mean modifying scripts etc. for the different holidays.

What I'd like - and I'm sure it would be useful for other users as well, is an actual calendar where I can select "do not run job" dates for the year. This feature is standard in Backup Exec and other backup apps so I'm not asking for anything revolutionary.

Regards

David

Hi David,
The calendar feature is going to be implemented in Veeam ONE in next versions.
Could you specify your request? Do you want us to show you date and time when the backups are scheduled to run with the job type specification?
Regarding management, what actions are to be taken besides "Start" and "Disable"?
Do you also want historical information about finished jobs to be shown?
Thanks!

Thank you for responding so quickly,

My request is quite basic, I just want to be able to edit a backup job within B&R, open a calendar for the job and select the dates I don't want the job to run. I don't need anything else

Regards

David

[FEATURE REQUEST] Visual timetable of my backups.

Veeam Logoby APR » Wed May 18, 2016 1:48 pm

Hello,


is there any way to have a big picture, an overview, of all my jobs timetable during a range of time?

I mean, I don't want to put too many jobs at the the same time, I want to have a good distribution of all my copies during the night, but now I have to open an excel and write down when does each copy begins and how long it takes to finish it, clicking each job, writting down start and finish time and finally put all these data in a spreadsheet marked with colours. Only then I can visually see if there is a bad distribution and maybe relocate jobs in an earlier or later hour range during the night.


As I have dozens of copies it's so time-consuming. Is there any way with veeam to get this information at once? if not, can you put it in a wish list.

Thanks
APR

Hello Christian,
That`s already in a wishlist for Veeam ONE features.
What time range is needed for the feature? Do you want to see if there are several jobs will be running at same time of the day?
It can be a bit tricky since you don`t know exactly how long a job will take to complete.
Thanks for the feedback!

Hello!

no no, what I want to see is what happened in the past, no in the future. I mean, I want to see from last monday until today at 08.00AM(a dynamic from/to would be great), where each column is a 30min time range (08:00, 08:30,09:00,09:30,...) and each row a virtual machine or a job(in my case 1job=1VM), then each field should be colored in red for example, if this machine was in a backup process at this time. And so evaluate what happened in the past to adjust a future schedule.

You already have all this data in veeam logs, you just need to present this in a more "visual" way.

thx

I see, thanks for the clarification.
Report calendar we are working on, is to include information of both past and future job runs.
Have you checked such Veeam ONE reports as Backup Jobs Historical Information and VMs Backed Up by Multiple Jobs?

[MERGED] Feature Request

Veeam Logoby kpax » Wed Dec 21, 2016 9:23 pm

Hey guys,

I would really, really like to see a feature/function in which BEM/VBR (either or) can dump all job schedules, including, if selected, health check schedule, active full schedule, and compact schedule, into an exportable/viewable calendar. This would make it very easy with many jobs and schedules, to find overlaps and adjust accordingly.

Currently, I do this manually in outlook but would really like an automated tool. Even just a simple webcal:// from BEM would be great, and if it could update entries with the length of backup and whether or not it was successful, even better.

If this is here, apologies, but I haven't found it.

Thanks all!

Hi kpax,
There is no such an option currently, however you can find some information in Veeam ONE reports.
We are planning to create calendar dashboard/report in next versions.

Please check the thread for more information. Thanks!
