    After project been updated, the project will be uploaded to Dropbox automatically (it may take seconds to minutes after closed the project). Please make sure QuickPlan has linked with your Dropbox (how to check? just export a project to Dropbox to test it)

 

The backup project file (.qpp) can be imported as a new project, see more about project sharing

 


 

Best practices:

– Please enable “Auto sync via iCloud” for the projects, this feature will help to sync projects across multiple devices of same iCloud account, AND it will also be useful for backup as the projects will be sync to iCloud after project been updated.

– If you want keep multiple versions of one project, suggest to manually upload the project to Dropbox or Box cloud when needed – when uploading, please specific another project name, for example a project “dev plan”, we can upload a copy to cloud storage with name “dev plan – version 1”.

– It will be good to backup the files in the “Apps/QuickPlan” folder of your Dropbox when needed.

Duplicate project as other project will be an good choice when you want to test some features.


 

Notes:  The old backup function (manually backup all projects together) in previous version has be removed.
