My personal use case would be: some apps have a lot of data (music, photo, video) that rarely changes and doesn't need a daily backup; other apps have small data (text files) that changes every day and does need daily backup.
To make backups faster AND smaller (helping with managing backup bucket size and such), it makes sense to exclude the first category from daily backups (which can be done, yes), but they also need to be included in a full backup at longer intervals.
Right now, all I can think to do is to go back and un-exclude these apps individually, run a manual backup (if, like me, you would like full backups in a separate bucket from daily backups, then edit the backup configuration), re-exclude them again individually (and re-edit backup configuration for coming daily backups).
Would it be possible to provide more backup options ?
extensive solution idea: ability to create app groups, each with individual backup schedule and configuration
easy solution idea: being able to activate/deactivate backup for individual apps by checking/unchecking boxes/buttons from the Backup page, instead of having to go back to each app's Backup section (even though the list and links already provided are a step in the right direction);
AND, ideally, ability to save more than one backup configuration, and tick a box on the Backup page to select the active one.
Thank you for reading!

Managing backups like we mange mailboxes does sound like a good idea, and can have checkboxes for daily, full, etc. per app, and more.
