• Can I use a cloud system to store my data? We get asked that a lot and for that reason, we are currently working on developing our cloud-based system. While we work on it, there are some ways for you to store your database in the cloud. First, bear in mind that you can not save the database you are currently using due to sync issues with Dropbox, Drive, etc. and our servers. However, uploading a database backup to the cloud is entirely safe. Click here to learn more about Backups!
