Backup: Disclaimer that company files in the cloud still require user backups

I have spoken with quite a few users who think that if their company file is online they no longer need to back it up.

Perhaps MYOB could include in the instructions for online set up a disclaimer to the effect that having your company file online does not replace the need to back up. 


"Backing Up Online Company Files"

    Thanks for the great idea PY12. You are certainly right it needs to be made clear that having a file online doesn't replace the need for making regular backups. Maybe we could have a prompt when closing the software advising the last time a backup was made. Please show your support if you like this idea.

    Only new to the online, but very hard to get out of the habit of backing up to a usb and an external hard drive. I still wish to do the back ups as I have 5 years of work that I don't want anything to happen to. Better to be safe than sorry. The only problem is the length of time it takes to back it up, as I want to take it off site for safe keeping
