Getting “Smart” – Part 2

Smart CollectionsGood morning! 🙂

Now you know how to create Smart Collections. What about transferring them from one catalog to another?

It’s not as complicated as it sounds. Your Smart Collections are stored withing your Catalog. If you use multiple Catalogs, you will need to create new Smart Collections in each Catalog.

Actually, instead of creating new Smart Collections within each Catalog, you can Export and Import them!

Here’s how it’s done:

Go to your Collections Panel, right-click on the Smart Collection that you want to export, and select “Export Smart Collection Settings…” from the drop-down menu and you’re done!

You see how easy it is? You can import Smart Collections in exactly the same way. Open a different Catalog, go to Collections panel and “Import Smart Collection Settings…”.

Have a wonderful day! 🙂
