    I manually exported the HTML file and dropped it into GDrive. Simple, but not automatic. Support has told me that it is not currently on the radar, so for the time being, I will just export regularly and save to GDrive

    Question...what is better to export OPML or HTML?

    I always export in OPML; it seems to be the most widely compatible and standard format for importing into other outliners or even back into Workflowy itself, should there ever be a problem.

    I just want to add a +1 to this request, Google Drive backup would be great, and OneDrive backup even better. I don't use Dropbox anymore.

    Possibly a silly question but why, given, that it's already in the cloud, do you need to back it up?

    +1 for this feature request. I pay for added Gdrive storage but don't have paid Dropbox (free tier only) so backup to Google Drive fits my tech topology better, and I suspect I'm not alone.  Thanks, /New Pro User

    As for me text format is fine. Independent backups are "must have". Not only something can go terribly wrong on workflowy side, but you can also accidentally delete a chunk of data and not notice it soon enough, or same thing but with person with edit access to your list.

    Alternatively some sort of permanent "export all" URL is fine too, as you can organize it yourself with ifttt, for example.

    So  it would be nice to have it exported to Google drive. Now I'm paying for this product and it's quite good. But, given that the rate of changes to it are very very slow - which is also good because it works so doesn't need to be fixed - I can't believe that Workflowy's technology resource is overwhelmed with work.

    So Can Workflowy tell us why it can't introduce this feature other than 'hey it's not on the radar'.

    So on behalf of other users can I respond  well please put it on the radar or give a GOOD reason why you won't.

    If for the want of a couple of hours / days / weeks work you are putting tens of thousands of users out then that is poor customer service.

    I would like to back it up to Google Drive. I use Google drive for business and personal stuff.  Do I really need to spend $70 per year JUST to back up workflowy (times all the customer base who may want to do this) just so you won't engage?

    regards

    Hi @ICT,

    This is not on our radar :-(

    We are planning to have a feature where users can restore their own deleted lists (and we do back up our servers every day)

    In addition, in the event of an unfortunate mishap, we are able to restore accidentally deleted lists.

    WorkFlowy has been incredibly hard at work and has been pushing out new features at a rate. As of today you will see "board" mode (still to be announced), polished and ready for the masses... besides the new left bar and dates feature this year alone.

    The Pro clocks in at $4.99/ month or $49/ year.You may be on the Teams plan. 

    ~ Frank

    Marcos,

    Dropbox backups (and the like) will most likely become redundant in the not-too-distant future...
