How to add sites to the backup queue

Queue-based backups are convenient when multiple sites require backups before proceeding with other maintenance. It allows the user to perform maintenance on sites with recent backups while the other sites are backed up in the background (i.e. in the queue). 

Adding sites to the backup queue

To add sites to the backup queue:

1. Log in to your Watchful account and view the sites dashboard.

2. Select the desired websites using the checkbox selectors on the left next to the site name.

3. Click the bulk actions button at the top-left. In the dropdown, select the add to backup queue button.

4. Monitor the last backup column in the sites dashboard to see when the backups in the queue are complete.
