Spanning supports backups and restorations of 17 metadata types, including the commonly used ones such as Workflows, Pages, Emails, Reports, Dashboards, Objects, and Triggers. Metadata Restore brings back your needed metadata swiftly directly from Spanning and without leaving your org.
You can restore entire records, specific fields of updated records, and related child records using Granular Restore. It’s also possible to overwrite field values during your granular restoration process.
Spanning allows you to restore data and metadata from your production org to a different org. You can even opt to anonymize individual fields as the restoration is in process.
Give your end-users the power to restore data on their fields by enabling Spanning Backup’s End-User Self Restore feature. Through this, users can quickly recover data on the record fields they are allowed to edit.
Spanning respects your defined Roles and Permissions within your Salesforce org. Only the records a particular end-user can see and update in Salesforce are the ones he/she can use on Spanning under the End-User Self-Restore feature.
Salesforce sandbox refresh refers to updating a sandbox’s metadata from its source org. Spanning makes sandbox refresh easier by utilizing its Compare Metadata tab. From here, you can see a direct comparison of customizations inside your sandbox and your production org. Differences before the sandbox refresh can be spotted through color-coded metadata components.
Like cross-org restore, Sandbox Seeding lets you restore data from a production org to the sandbox. You can also anonymize certain fields when seeding to a sandbox.
