Feature Request: Linked SureBackup jobs

Post by zoltank »

It made me really happy when I was able to link backup jobs so that one started right after last one finished running. I'd love to see the same functionality given to SureBackup jobs. I run my SureBackup jobs after every backup, so it would be a nice way to save time by having them start immediately after the backup jobs finish and an previous SureBackup jobs finish.

Yes, this was brought up internally as well by our technical writing team, but we did not get a chance to squeeze this into 6.5 unfortunately.

So there's a pretty good chance we'll see it in a future release?

Any chance this will be in the upcoming v7 release?

I spoke to soon. A SureBackup job can be scheduled to run after a backup job, but it cannot be scheduled to run after another SureBackup job. It would be really good if this could be fixed, since I'm sure there are many users (me included) who have to run more than one SureBackup job.

Thanks, zoltank, for the feedback; much appreciated. For now, in order to have certain dependency between SureBackup jobs’ execution you can start them via simple PowerShell script. Thanks.
