This article is related to the legacy Accounting Link integration (and not for cloud-based Xero and MYOB Integrations). Please refer to the Accounting Integration Overview article for details on supported integrations.
When using the Accounting Link Application we recommend you take regular backups, this can be done in one of two ways:
- Prompted backup
- Manual Backup
To make it easier to remember to back up we have included a feature that when closing the application you will always be prompted to take a backup:
When you select 'Yes' you will be asked to save this backup somewhere appropriate. We recommend that you create a new specific folder to store these backups to save this backups to.
By default the file name will be abbreviated in the following way: AISDB_YEARMONTHDAY_TIME.gz
The second method is a manual backup which should be done prior to making any changes to the settings. To do this simply click on the Connections Tab, select the Database tab, then click "Backup" and once again save it to an appropriate location:
We recommend to keep at least 1 months worth of backups before considering deleting them from your chosen location.
Restoring a Backup
If you ever need to restore a backup simply click on the Restore button as displayed above and select the most appropriate backup. Once the restore has completed a success message will be shown on the screen.
