Export FlowShare settings
Updated over a week ago

You have the option to export FlowShare settings from one device in order to import them on any number of other devices. This way, e.g. Design and License related settings can be conveniently distributed uniformly among all employees in an organization without having to manually adjust each instance.

The export of settings is located in the Settings dialog under the Import/Export tab.

Here, simply select the settings you want to share with others:

In doing so, you can copy not only the Design settings (such as logo, colors, fonts, arrow shape, the name of the organization in the default author or company name), but also the license key for activation. (The activation during import can only succeed if you still have free license keys in your plan).

Then click on “Export” button to create an .fss file (the file extension stands for FlowShare Settings).

Your colleagues and employees can import this .fss file on the same place (e.g. via drag & drop or browsing for the file). FlowShare will apply the new settings from that moment on. Your team will thank you for it!
