    Is the ability to Execute Following Plan After Backup Completes in the New Format complete and ready for use? If not, is there an estimate as to when it will be available? We would like to be able to chain local and cloud, image and file and folders backups to run one after another. This would make scheduling easier and more efficient. We would like to be able to have monthly full backups using the same Execute Following Plan After Backup Completes as well if possible.

    Any feedback concerning this question? We would like to chain backups together using the MSP360 version 7 and the New Format backups if this is ready for use.

    Thank you Alexandar! I see this in the UI but thought that someone mentioned that this feature should not be used yet. I may be wrong. Have you or have others used this feature in MSP360 v7 New Format with success? Any best practices regarding this feature?

    I would request that you wait until the 7.4.0 release before you start using chained backups. The current implementation will always run an incremental backup on the chained plan. The 7.4 release will include a new option to execute the same type of backup that is being run on the main plan. You'll also have to make sure that your GFS settings are compatible between the two plans based on the main plan's schedule if you use GFS. You should also make sure that the chained plan has no schedule assigned to it.
