BackupAssist 365 Community Builds

Regularly updated, early access to the latest features.

What is a community build?

A community build is a pre-release build that has passed through internal testing, and is ready for our community to try. We encourage our community to try the software in a variety of environments, to identify potential issues in the field.

Automatic permissions setting for OneDrive for Business multi-user backups

Note: if you get asked for a login, right click and open these links in a private window.

Release notes

This community build will eliminate the need to manually set permissions to grant “Site Collection Administrator” permissions to the backup login. Instead, making sure that the backup login has “Application Admin” and “SharePoint Admin” roles will be sufficient, and permissions will be granted to the backup login user automatically.

Previous Community Builds

Past community builds have been incorporated into the mainstream release and are available on the BackupAssist 365 Downloads page.
