The CodeGuard dashboard is a management tool that displays the status of backups and restore versions, keeps track of changes to files and sends notifications to the account owner. This article will provide a brief walkthrough of what to expect when navigating through the CodeGuard dashboard.
CodeGuard users will see the All Sites page immediately after logging into CodeGuard. From here, users can view:
- The sites and databases on their account
- The date that the site/database was added
- The size of the site/database
- The status of the next backup
- A link to edit settings for the CodeGuard service
The Total Disk Usage meter in the top-right corner of the page also allows users to view the total amount of disk space being used for their CodeGuard account. When a site is selected, this meter changes to Website Disk Usage and reflects the disk usage for the selected site.
By clicking on a site name, users can review the status of their site's backup and access various other features through the following tabs:
This section displays how many files have been modified with each backup and also lists whether the files were added, removed or edited. Users are also able to see the proportion of the various file types within their current backup as well as request a new backup.
This section displays the databases that have been automatically detected and modified with each backup and also lists whether any lines were added, removed or edited.
This section allows users to view the number of backup versions on file available to restore. By clicking on the Restore Options button next to an available backup, users can choose from three options:
- Request a zip file of the backup version and potentially replace files manually
- Restore all files from a backup version
- Search for a single file to restore
This section allows users to customize settings for monitoring and notifications. Here users can set monitoring frequency and toggle settings for email notifications and notification filtering.
Additional account settings are available in the Settings drop-down menu in the top-right corner of the CodeGuard dashboard.
This section displays all notifications sent from CodeGuard to the user's email address, allowing users to track notification history and ensuring that users have a way to be notified at all times.
