It is important to take regular database backups, especially when running MultiTasks that make significant changes to the database. It is recommended that you include a Database Backup AutoTask as the first task in a MultiTask.

To create the database backup AutoTask:
- From IFP Home select Databases/Files > Create Database Backup
- Enter relevant notes for the backup
- Select Save As AutoTask...
