AttendHRM database backup can be taken directly from the software. A quick backup of database is recommended prior any major changes is done in AttendHRM like updating or major change of attendance or salary policies. In such scenarios it won’t be feasible to rely on the scheduled automatic backup of DB as usually the backup processes would be set for night time since the work would be minimal during that time. AttendHRM has a direct backup option available under the ‘Administration’ module that can be easily implemented.

Backup Database

  • Go to ‘Administration’ -> Backup. Add(+) to define a new process of backup.
  • Give a name for the backup process you are about to initiate and provide details of the same. Specify the location where the backup file has to be saved. Save the settings and the backup file will be created in the location specified as shown in the above video.

Backup Time

The backup file will be created at the instance you save the backup process. However, it is important to note that the backup process won’t be complete at that moment itself. It might require a few more seconds to complete the process depending on the size of the original DB of which the backup is being taken. You can note the memory of backup file created changing as time passes indicating that the process is still running. We can confirm the backup of DB has been completed once the memory of backup file stays stable.
