SmartBackup is a next generation cloud-enabled backup platform for Smartsheet
It consist of:
There are various reasons for having backups. In climbing, a backup can save your life, but with data, a backup can save your business.
Those in the know will know Smartsheet themselves provide a convenient Backup facility. The challenge comes when you want to recover from it and realises things like your automations, cell formats, links etc. cannot be recovered because the copy you have is outside the Smartsheet environment. With us, easy-peasy.
It consist of:
Make an exact copy, preserving your formats, links, rules, attachments, a feature not available from standard Smartsheet backups. Modernise the way one secure sheets by automatically backing up changed sheets, that way you do not have to figure out what to backup.
Drain your Backup Pool automatically to a filestore residing outside SmartSheet.
On-demand or sheduled securing of all or individual sheets to a filestore or other cloud residing outside Smartsheet. Ideal for taking snapshots or DRP Recovery points. Did we mention it can also do incrementals.
Myth! Smartsheet data only matters for Project teams, so it’s not that important.
Myth! The only reason to back up Smartsheet data is in case of a disaster.
A collaborator may accidentally delete a shared attachment, or you may delete some scrapped rows and then later learn the data is still necessary.
Smartsheet application sets hold large amounts of data that are constantly updated. When large data sets are imported, accidental overwriting may become quite common.
Through various means, your data can be corrupted and inaccessible without the proper backup solution.
If incorrectly mapped fields are imported, the correct data may be overwritten in your shared database.
Third-party applications can modify data in ways you didn’t intend. With Smartsheet's wider adoption and inter-operation in the Enterprise this becomes a major threat.
Data can be lost due to reasons other than malicious intent. Under the new data protection rules, data destruction and corruption of personal data are considered forms of data breaches and would require appropriate notifications.
SmartBackup provides users with a way to automatically secure and preserve Smartsheets. This automatic process captures key context around the data and how it is used, promoting new angles for what you can use it for. Making it easier to enforce data governance policies.
SmartBackup is a Backup and Recovery platform exclusively designed for Smartsheet.

If you haven’t taken deliberate action to back up your Smartsheet data, then it’s not protected. That means you can count on Smartsheet to ensure the security and integrity of the platform, but you are responsible for securing and managing all the data you generate.
SmartBackup is a backup platform for Smartsheet that dramatically reduces the time and effort required to secure Smartsheet data.
No. All backups are done within Smartsheet, so it is an exact copy of the original in Smartsheet format. Physical restore should be a doddle, of course logically with sheet dependencies (cell-links) may require some consideration.
There is no limit on use, you can do it as frequently as your capacities allow. Of course it make sense to sit down and plan what make sense for your environment. Maybe that means a Full Export once a month with incremental backups every day at 19h00.
Yes the Starter Edition is complete free for life. Understandably it carries retrictions. For full pricing refer to AcuWorkflow
Yes and No, yes they offer a standard backup process which have some limitations. No in a report by Forrester they point out the implications of SaaS platforms and that the User still is responsible for securing their own data. By using SmartBackup we just make it simpler, easier and better.
Yes, it will easily co-exist and integrate into other systems management tools. The degree of integration is up to you, for example you may only want to schedule it from your Enterprise Scheduler or you may want to embed it into PowerShell etc.
Yes, there are different versions please check out the Reference Guide The major difference between Business and Enterprise are automation, centralised admin and more easily deal with larger environments. For example in Business Edition every Backup User needs a Smartsheet API token, easily obtainable and manageable for 1 or 3 Users. Thereafter it becomes problematic, something easily solved with the Enterprise Edition which uses a single super api token called a sysadmin token.
