Exporting and Importing Objects

Use CommonSpot's export/import options to create objects once and distribute them to multiple sites. This feature can increase productivity, as well as improve site stability, by introducing only tested and approved objects into your environment. You can import objects from any source (internal groups, PaperThin partners, or customers) and leverage the work of others to speed development and production.

CommonSpot includes features for detecting and comparing any resources required by the modules you import, with options to choose a new or local version of any specific resources. See Resources and Libraries and Importing Step 2 of 2.
