data storage - cell history


I was asked what kind of data are stored in backups.

I could not find out if also the cell history will be stored in backups.

Could you answer this?

    Hi @Jörg Schmidt Novum Hospitality

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible now to have cell history included, but it's an excellent idea!

    Please submit this as a Product Feedback or Idea (If it hasn't been added already) when you have a moment.

    More info on what's included.

    Backup FAQ: What’s in my backup file?

    A backup consists of a ZIP folder containing the following:

    • Excel (.xlsx) files of the data from each sheet you requested to have backed up. If your sheets contain comments, they appear on a separate Comments tab in each Excel workbook.
    • A folder containing any images that you included inline in your sheet. (For more information about inline images, see the article Adding Images to Grid View.)
    • A folder containing any attachments uploaded directly to your sheets from a computer or mobile device. The backup does not include attachments from online sources such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Egnyte, or URL.

    • 3rd-party service

    Is that an option?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
