Client side manual "backup" button

I am not sure If I am crazy, but I swear there was an option within the ABB client to click a "backup now" button to manually fire off a backup. I contacted synology support but they stated that "manual" schedule only allows you to fire off a backup from the admin portal interface. Is there a manual option that exists from the client side?

Well I tried on my home NAS but did not see the option. Maybe at some point I confused ABB and Synology drive in my head and thought it existed in ABB as well. I am going to submit a feature request if possible though. But I guess this is the answer to my question. Thanks for the help @fredbert

This is the response I get from Synology Support. But I am positive I have seen a button to manually start backups on the client side in the past.

I don't recall there being a backup method that's available on the ABB client. The nearest thing is to configure a backup to trigger on lock/unlock then do just that on the PC to force a backup.

Hm.. Maybe I am crazy. I swear I saw it when I was testing it out on my DS1019+
It even states users should be able to manually start a backup in their manual. (attached)
Unless I am misinterpreting this, or there is another method the user can start the backup.

I assumed that Help description meant you had to initiate from the NAS.

I mean its meant for a business environment. How would a User initiate a backup from the NAS itself? I'll end up testing at home but I am just surprised that it would not be a button for the user to initiate themselves.

I'll test out tonight when I am home to see if there really was a button or not. I might be wrong about that. If this is not a current feature of Synology's ABB client though, I think it would make more sense for there to be a manual button on the users end instead of on the NAS for the admin. No reason to set a "manual" schedule at that point.

I agree it makes sense to have an end-user initiated backup.
