Quick Scheduling for Backup Activation

Postby SeaCay » Mon Dec 04, 2017 12:07 am

Hello Adrian and everyone at Backup4All,

I find that the scheduling system for B4A projects is excellent and makes my life easier.
However, IT being IT, a scheduled backup might not be quite timely enough and running a backup during certain times may impact daily operations.
So I thought, without reverting to using the scheduler is it possible to schedule a backup to start at say 1am, on an ad-hoc/impromptu basis?
Ideally, what I would like to do is right click on a backup entry in B4A, have a menu item option, such as:

Run Backup ==> Now (<-- this menu entry not really necessary, of course, but entered for completeness of example)
==> In 1
==> In 2 Hours
==> In 5 Hours
==> at a nominated time (This calls a dialog by which the time can be set)

Is this currently achievable or is it something you would consider adding to an upcoming version release?

regards and thanks
