Change data folder
Administrators can choose the folder in which all data of the Attendance Planner is stored by selecting the menu option File - Change Data Folder.
If you change the data folder, you move the data into the selected folder (except if the selected folder already has the data of the Attendance Planner).
Administrators can export the data folder with the menu option File - Export Data into a backup file.
Save your data regularly on an external back-up. If your hard disk fails, all your data will be irretrievable.
You can export currently displayed data to a CSV file by pressing the key F12. In this way you can continue editing the data using another program like Excel. An export to a CSV file is available for the Main Form, the Annual Overview, the Vacation Overview, the Table of Totals and the Logbook.
Using the menu option File - Import Data administrators can import a backup file saved under File - Export Data. All current existing data is overwritten by the data stored in the backup file.
The program automatically sets regular backup periods e.g. the first program start-up of the day or before changing ‘reasons for presence/ absence’ or changing employee data.
The menu option File - Recover Data enables an administrator to recover all data to an earlier backup point. All changes made since then, will be undone.
Before the data folder is recovered a new backup point is set, so you can undo the recovery.
