Auto Backup Feature in Web-based VEXcode GO

In order to keep your progress while working on a project, VEXcode GO has an automatic backup feature.

This article will cover:

  • Auto Backup in a Project on codego.vex.com

If you are in a classroom that shares devices and do not want a student to see the previous student’s code, start a new project before closing the VEXcode VR tab.

Please note that if you have multiple VEXcode GO tabs open in your web browser, the auto backup will ONLY store the project in the last tab that was closed. The other projects will not be backed up.

While working on a project in the Web-based VEXcode GO, your web browser may unexpectedly or accidentally be closed. To restore your project, simply reopen VEXcode GO in your Chrome-based web browser.

Once the project has been restored, it is recommended that you save the project.

If you have selected a block or modified a restored project and attempt to open a new project, you will be prompted to save.
