Policies are exclusively accessible within the Business edition of Zoolz.

Policy Definition

Zoolz policies provide a centralized means for account administrators to manage all backup operations for users within the account via the Zoolz website. This approach prevents users from directly controlling backup settings through the Zoolz desktop application installed on their computers and servers.

Policy Advantages

1. Centralized Management: Zoolz policies offer a centralized platform for account administrators to oversee all backup operations for users within the account. This centralized approach streamlines management tasks, ensuring efficient and consistent backup configurations across all users.

2. Controlled Access: By preventing users from directly controlling backup settings through the Zoolz desktop application installed on their devices, administrators can maintain greater control over data backup procedures. This reduces the likelihood of inadvertent modifications to backup configurations by individual users.

3. Simplified Assignment: The process of assigning policies to specific users is straightforward, requiring only a few steps within the Zoolz online account interface. This simplicity enhances administrative efficiency and reduces the likelihood of errors during policy assignment.

4. Automated Backup Activation: With policies in place, the Zoolz desktop software can automatically initiate backups according to predefined settings. This automation ensures that backups occur promptly and consistently, without relying on manual intervention from users.

5. Flexibility for New Installations: For users without the Zoolz desktop software installed on their devices, policy implementation facilitates seamless onboarding. Administrators can simply instruct users to install the Zoolz application and enter their login credentials, allowing for quick integration into the centralized backup system.

How to Edit a Policy

To edit an existing backup policy, here is what to do:

  1. Sign in to your Zoolz online account.
  2. Refer to the Policies tab.
  3. Click on the Edit icon (Edit policy icon) next to the policy that you wish to modify.
  4. Make your changes, and click Save to confirm.

If the edited policy is already in use, it will take the Zoolz desktop application on the target machine(s) at least 15 minutes to automatically switch and start backing up as per the new policy settings.
