Exporting and Importing

Mobile Supported

Import and exporting enables you to import and export Portfolio items for use in other portfolios. When you export items, you also export the item's description, tags, and settings.


Export Portfolio items

You can export your entire portfolio content or specific items. If you export specific items, use the auto-include options to ensure you also export any related items you might want.
