Backup/Restore Utility

Postby hemitommy » Fri Feb 06, 2015 6:33 pm

During my backup procedure, I backup "All Data Files and "Accounting Files". Is there any way to keep the Backup/Restore utility on the screen without having to click the utility the second time so I can backup the "accounting files"? It would be nice to keep the backup/restore feature active(on the screen) until I am finished with it. Is there any way to do this?

No, and I haven't seen that its been that much of an issue based on the messages on the forum. That's not to say this is not something that can be done in when Powerchurch finally moves to a new programming/database platform in the future. However, even Quicken/Quickbook's backup system disappears after one use :)

Doesn't backing up "all data files" backup the accounting files?

Yes it does, but some locations (mine included) backup the accounting files separately for the treasurer to review at home, they can't write checks as that's done at the church, but they can create reports for their review.
