Cosmic helps blended teams of developers and editors build content-powered apps faster. When an entire team is editing in the Cosmic Dashboard, content and data security is pertinent for the project's success. This includes preservation of drafts and revisions as well as snapshots of your data. 

In addition to Import / Export Features and Revision History, Cosmic has added Automatic Bucket Backups to deliver even more peace of mind to you and your content editing team. To add daily Backups to your Buckets go to Your Bucket Dashboard > Settings > Backups

How to Schedule Automatic Backups in Cosmic



How it works

2. Every day at 12am UTC a Backup of your Bucket will be saved.
3. You will be able to manually save a Snapshot of your Bucket at any time as well.
4. All Snapshots are available for easy download and restore.
