Hi everybody, 

I restored a board with a backup file. I have the problem just now that it shows me as a creator of all sticky notes although other guys of the team created content. It happens exactly the same if I duplicate a board.

Although we haven't had a chance to implement the saving of the metadata in backup files yet, it certainly sounds like a great addition to our product. I can see how much value it could bring to our service and all of our users.

To this end, I've passed your request along to our Product team so they consider it as a functionality improvement. …”

so my question is answered for now. Thanks for your support everybody. 

Best regards,
