I would like to perform a monthly export backup of all our clients data inside Infusionsoft.
What is the best way to do this?
Thanks, Tony

Hi Tony,
That will work well if you have a smaller list… not so well with larger lists

We’ve started experiencing problems in the past few months where if the download is too large it will time out.

We can batch it down into smaller chunks but it becomes a pain.

If anyone else has a solution on what they’ve been doing, would love to hear about it.

Jordan - took a look at your site/service.

We have a larger list, I don’t think we really need back-up every 15 minutes.

Do you offer a monthly upgrade plan?

The backup is incremental, so by pulling every 15 minutes we pull only a minimal amount of data each 15 minutes and avoid needing to run huge backup jobs less regularly. If you want more info - just send us an email: support@novaksolutions.com

Hi there,
If the internal backup doesn’t work for you, it is possible to put all the data into CSV or Excel automatically using Data2CRM migration service

Thank you for your response Sasha :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info Jordan,
I will email you about your system ASAP.

We have just over 100,000 contacts now and we are paying a very large monthly fee to Infusionsoft and I just tried to export my contacts and it is failing of course… :confused:
***Pretty LAME Infusionsoft… very LAME…

WHY ON EARTH cant a large company like Infusionsoft make exporting our data quick and easy???

From one very unhappy unsatisfied grumpy infusionsoft customer that will never recommend your platform to anyone until you shape up and fix this horrible useless garbage…

@Tony_States, does this article help? If not, let me know. https://help.infusionsoft.com/help/export-contacts-from-infusionsoft

If the process is timing out, it’s probably due to a too large file size. I don’t have any specifics on file size limits, unfortunately, but support recommended to try to split it up by “contact id” range…like 1 - 50,000; 50,001-100,000, etc… you can then save those searches and export them once a week or whenever.

Contacts > Edit criteria columns > Misc criteria > id range

Scroll down and enter an id range

You can save these searches for future exports.

Thanks for trying to help Martin, but this fails???
I did half my contacts and the lame stupid poorly designed platform loads and shows me only 10,200 contacts??? this platform has a lot to be desired… and this is a nasty lame oversight… WHY cant the developers just use some common sense and make a decent backup system instead of this horrible lame stupid nonsense??? so now what do I do??? this sucks…

I just tried the recommended 50000 and it also times out and failed???
HORRIBLE GUYS…
THIS HAS TO BE FIXED…
WE ARE PAYING YOU A FORTUNE FOR THIS PLATFORM TO WORK…
