How to Backup and Restore your data




Using OneDrive for Business or Office 365?
iDoceo does not support O365 or One Drive for Business.

Using BOX or ownCloud?

BOX and ownCloud both support the WebDAV protocol and can be used as a backup method in iDoceo. You will find here specific instructions.

How to create a backup of your information

iDoceo offers virtually unlimited backup methods. They all basically have the same functionality, but you'll be able to choose whether your backups are stored in the cloud (Dropbox,Google Drive, OneDrive, iCloud, WebDAV) or in a local server(WebDAV) at home or at school.

Dropbox - configuring your backup settings (First time only)

In order to be able to use this backup method, you will need a Dropbox account.
You can create a free account here at https://www.dropbox.com
To link iDoceo with your Dropbox account, tap on Settings (gear icon, top bar) > Dropbox and enable the Dropbox account link as shown in the image below.
A new window will open asking for your Dropbox account credentials. If it succeeds, you should see the Dropbox account link ON.
You are now ready to back up your data.

To backup all your data, click on Backup Now either from the Settings Screen, or from the main screen's cloud button (top bar). There's no need to wait for the backup to end, you can continue working on iDoceo again. The backup is performed on background, amd when completed you'll see the 'Backup completed' message on screen.

Restoring your information

In the event of having to restore your information, you must click on Settings (on the main screen), choose your Backup method, and then Restore Archived Data.

You'll be presented with a list of all the available backups. Select the date you want to restore to.

Wait for a few seconds while the backup is downloaded. It will ask for confirmation and done ... your data will be back in place.
Restoring a backup will ERASE your current data stored in iDoceo and it will be replaced with that of the backup. This operation cannot be undone.
This operation will work even if you erase iDoceo's app from your iPad and install it again from the app Store.
