In the Console, you will see 4 graphic widgets on the Backup Dashboard in the form of doughnut charts.

  • The Backup Statuses widget offers a breakdown of the statuses of the latest backup sessions for your devices

  • The Last Backup widget shows a the timing of the latest backup sessions for your devices

What you can do with these widgets:

  • Expand/minimize a widget using the arrow icon in the top right corner
