Project Online Backup Guide

The modern world runs on data. As a result, ensuring that your sensitive data can be stored easily has become increasingly important.

PMOs and IT administrators experience a range of risks trying to secure data and protect their businesses. Most of them are unaware of how to automate backups.

Moreover, implementing these backups into management practice can be a challenge. That’s why having an easy and reliable Project Online backup service is crucial.

Project Online Needs Protection

Microsoft Project Online is a flexible online PPM software designed to meet all your work needs. You can create, customize, and collaborate your PWAs across various platforms’ devices.

But the reality is that your data can get corrupted or lost, costing your company a lot in downtimes and repairs.

Whatever projects you manage – internal or external, product or service delivery – project backup must be a routine part of your daily operations.

Project Online data backup and restore gives you, your workers, and your customers peace of mind. Protect your credibility, improve your reputation, and safeguard your data and information. Even if you lose your data, you may quickly restore it and continue your business.

How does backing up Project Online work?

Out of the box, if you need to roll back a single project in Project Online, ALL projects must revert with it. This makes the Advisicon Project Backup Tool a critical addition to any Project Online environment.

Save your sanity by backing up projects individually. Using this tool, you can choose which project and version you want to restore.

This solution backs up projects, tasks, resources, and groups, allowing you to recover corrupted or lost data from backup copies with the latest versions.

It also decreases PWA administration time, minimizes expenses associated with human errors, and improves Microsoft Project Online usage efficiency.

Running on the Microsoft Azure platform provides exceptional security by storing data in the cloud. This system performs continuous backup, meaning you can quickly restore your data from previous project versions in case of data loss.

In the event of accidental deletions or other data damage, you can restore Microsoft Project Online data automatically:

  • Simply choose the necessary environment
  • Select the backup copy you want to restore
  • Pick the data to be restored
  • Launch the process and review the summary

Our Process

  1. Client meeting

    We begin by meeting with you to understand your exact needs. Can you use the tool out-of-the-box? For standard cloud-based circumstances, we only need to gather credentials.


    • Saving the file somewhere other than a SharePoint folder
    • Requiring an on-premise solution
  2. Deployment

    We deploy your backup instance, storing any credentials encrypted and secure in an Azure Key Vault.

  3. Testing

    Once the instance is deployed, we perform a manual run to establish your baseline backups. We ensure that all settings and functions perform optimally every time a backup happens. A backup schedule that suits you is put into place, and we confirm that all is running correctly.

  4. Ongoing Monitoring

    Daily backups are performed, and you now have SharePoint access to individual project .mpp files to restore at will! We monitor your backup jobs to ensure you’re never at risk.
