Adding an Automatic Laptop Backup Schedule to a Schedule Policy

You can automatically run a laptop backup by adding an automatic schedule to a schedule policy. The laptop backup is automatically run when specific criteria are met, for example, when a laptop is connected to a specific network. Automatic schedules are available for clients that have the Laptop Backup package installed.

You can also configure a schedule when you perform a backup on a subclient. For information on how to configure a schedule, see Creating an Automatic Schedule for a Laptop Client.
