Automated/scheduled backups

rhowerhowe Member Posts: 2

We recently discovered (the hard way) that there are no backups of retail inventory available outside of what is generated through the manual export. Outside of some sort of third party module or development, is there really no way of automating or scheduling backups of inventory?

    Sorry, to clarify, no backups of retail inventory 'Quantity' available outside of the manual backup.

    It would still be extremely helpful to have some sort of automatic backup available so we didn't have to turn to LS support. We recently had a problem where multiple thousands of our products were archived in error, and there was no immediate way to reference the old inventory prior to the issue.

    Hey @rhowe

    Thanks for the feedback regarding the automated backup of the Assets report on a pre-determined basis (weekly, daily, monthly etc)! I've noted it in our list of requested enhancement updates to the software! 

    I would like to point out that you can always use the Lightspeed Analytics software to send you updated reports on a pre-determined basis, but this would be a separate software that you'd need to discuss with your sales rep.


    If you have any further questions Please do not hesitate to contact LightSpeed support or check out our Support Page.

    All the best!
