Backup list, visible in the middle column of the main window, contains all the backup jobs defined. The backup jobs can be grouped into tags, for easy handling.
By default, backup jobs are listed by Execution order column. In other words, if running all jobs one after the other, they will be executed in order from top to bottom.

To configure a backup job's appearance (icon and label) in the backup list, you have to open the Backup Properties window, switch to the General tab, change the name of the backup job, assign it to an existing tag or create a new tag and select a backup job icon. When you backup a tag, the backup jobs (containing that tag) are backed up in the order they are displayed in the tag list.

Backup4all can process multiple backup jobs at the same time. You can filter the backup list to see which backup jobs are executed at a certain time.
From the left side column of the main application you can filter the backup jobs in list. You can choose to see all jobs, only the running jobs, failed jobs or only the jobs containing a specific tag.
If there are many backups listed, you can search for a backup job by typing its name in the Type to search box on the bottom of the Backup List.
