You can start backup configuration also from Nexetic Portal. This is recommended for resellers.

Step 4. Option 1: Configure Backup Settings for All Users

The Settings page is the easiest way to configure backups for all users.

Note

If you want to configure backups for certain Entra ID groups, you can proceed to Step 5. If you don't want to back up all users, or all users in certain Entra ID groups, you can enable backups only for specific users on the Users page. See Step 6 for details.

Step 4a. Configure User Services

  • If you want to back up data from all users, select User services and click All users.
  • Select which items to back up: Mail, Drive, Contacts, Calendar, Teams private chats
  • Select Add new Users automatically to backup if you want to have all new Microsoft 365 users automatically added to the backup.
  • Click Save

Step 4b. Configure Organization Services

  • On Settings page, select Organization services and click the SharePoint&Teams files slide switch to enable backup for SharePoint and Teams files that are stored in SharePoint. Then click the icon to open the Site selector. You can use the Select all or Deselect all options to help make the site / team selection for backup. You can also click the slide switches for single sites / teams to include or exclude them from backup. Save the selection by clicking Save
  • Select Add new sites automatically to backup if you want to have all new SharePoint sites / Teams automatically added to the backup.
  • Select Teams channel posts to enable backup for posts on Teams channels - both public and private channels are included.
  • Select Planner plans to enable backup for Planners.
  • Click Save

Info

  • On May 14th, 2024 we published a new Site selector feature, allowing the administrator to select certain SharePoint sites & Teams for backup instead of backing up all SharePoint sites and Teams. 
  • Note that Teams files will be backed up if SharePoint and users' OneDrive backups are enabled.
  • Teams channel posts are backed up if backup for 'Teams channel posts' is enabled.
  • Backup for Teams private chats needs to be enabled separately under Settings -> User Services.

Step 5. Option 2: Configure Backup Settings for Entra ID groups

You can configure backups for selected Entra ID (former Azure AD) groups on the Settings page.

  • Select User services and click Users in Entra ID Groups (former Azure AD Groups)
  • Select Entra ID groups for backup from the drop-down menu by checking the boxes
    • Entra ID groups are displayed alphabetically. When you have selected groups for backup and clicked the 'Save' button, all selected groups are first displayed alphabetically, followed by the rest of the groups that are also in alphabetical order.
    • You can search for groups by the Entra ID Group name
  • Next, select which items to back up: Mail, Drive, Contacts, CalendarTeams private chats
  • Select Add new Users automatically to backup if you want to have all new Microsoft 365 users in the selected Entra ID groups automatically added to the backup
  • Click Save

To configure backup for Organization services (SharePoint, Teams), check instructions from Step 4b.

Step 6. Option 3: Configure Backup Settings for Specific Users

In case you want to enable backups for selected users only, you can do this on Users page. 

First, click on the Users button in the top navigation to proceed to the Users page.

Click on the gear wheel icon to configure backup for a single user.
