My Shift Planner has a free cloud backup so that you can aways keep your data safe. We’ve made some changes in the latest update, so you can choose which of your backups to restore into the app. Here’s how it works. 

Keeping your Shift Calendar Safe and Secure

It’s always important to keep your data backed up in the My Shift Planner app. We encourage users to set up a free cloud account, and switch on Auto-Sync in the app. This means that your app will regularly backup your data to our cloud database. So if you ever lose or change your phone, or make a change by mistake, you can restore your backup from the cloud and get your data back. 

We’ve added a new feature in the latest update v.5.2 that allows you to choose which of your previous backups you want to restore. 

It’s purposefully been hidden a little, but the option to go back to over several months of backups is now available to all users who have free cloud accounts. 

Here’s how you can see your previous backups. 

Choose Your Backup

Tap on the menu icon in the top left of the main screen. And then on the option Backup/Restore Data
Tap on the option at the bottom – CONFIGURE
Tap on the Restore Backup button to bring up a list of your previouis backups
You can choose from up to 10 previous backups of your Shift Calendar Data

Even if you choose to restore an older backup, your later ones are still saved and available to restore back into your phone should you choose to do so. 

Our cloud database is set up to store 10 older backups. Unfortunately, we don’t have unlimited space on the server to store everything from the year dot, but most users find what they need in the last few Backups.
