Migrating your signs

Before you are able to make your signs live, they will need to be in the right server. Sandbox is mostly for people who are still in training or for those that are testing out new templates. This page will show you how to migrate your player from Sandbox into production without having to reinsert all of the content.

  1. Right click on the Player you wish to move from Sandbox into Production (Ferris State University).
  2. From the drop down menu, select 'Export Sign...'
  3. This will open up your file management system (Windows Explorer or Finder), navigate to a folder that will contain the files for your sign. *Make sure you will be able to remember where you placed these files. Creating a separate folder specifically for exporting signs might be a good idea.

  6. After a few seconds a dialog box will appear in Content Manager. Wait until the save process is complete and close the dialog box by selecting either cancel or the x.
