Myth! SmartSheet data only matters for Project teams, so it’s not that important.

Reality! SmartSheet data is essential to the entire operations of many companies.

Myth! The only reason to back up SmartSheet data is in case of a disaster.

Reality! Data losses are an everyday occurrence, and most of them are accidental.

Let us take a look at some of the biggest threats to your Smartsheet data

  • User deletion
  • A collaborator may accidentally delete a shared attachment, or you may delete some scrapped rows and then later learn the data is still necessary.

  • Data overwrites with incorrect data
  • Smartsheet application sets hold large amounts of data that are constantly updated. When large data sets are imported, accidental overwriting may become quite common.

  • Data corruption
  • Through various means, your data can be corrupted and inaccessible without the proper backup solution.

  • Data migration issues caused by incorrectly mapped fields
  • If incorrectly mapped fields are imported, the correct data may be overwritten in your shared database.

  • Third-party applications errors
  • 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 Loss
  • 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

  • What is SmartBackup?

    SmartBackup is a backup platform for Smartsheet that dramatically reduces the time and effort required to secure Smartsheet data.

  • Do you require SmartBackup to restore a sheet?

    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.
