QSnTT - Quickr Connectors Export/Import Option


At The View Admin 2011 when I was presenting my Quickr session, (will post slides shortly) and asked how many people new about this subject and only 1 hand int he room went up. And he was from Europe so I figured I should remind everyone about this.

This is really important for a number of reasons:
1) Backup your own sites or any user that needs to get a new laptop. Ever try to manually add dozens or hundreds of sites? Enough said.
2) Does your company supply prebuilt laptop images? And you probably need to keep these updated too.
3) Makes demo setups easier too

Probably many more reasons to use it but here are the links to using it from 8.2 and 8.5. I fixed the 8.5 link.

In my session I explained how to do it, then did a live export, deleted everything in my places connector then  an import. It took not even 2 minutes.
