What does export-import do ?

Export-Import helps to transfer a specific folder (and the content within it - messages and categories) from one device to another, without having to copy the entire content through a backup. 


How to Export a category?

  1. Navigate to the folder that you want to export. 
  2. Tap the Edit button on the top right corner to enter the Edit mode. 
  3. Tap the Ellipsis button (the button with the three dots) on the bottom right corner of the navigation panel. 
  4. Tap Export this category.
  5. This opens a window with a default name of the folder that you are exporting (you can change the name if you wish to). 
  6. Click OK to proceed with the export. This may take a few seconds and you will get a message after the export is completed. 
  7. Now go to Settings -> Backup & Restore -> Link to Dropbox and turn it ON. This will transfer the folder content from the device to Dropbox (on the cloud). 
Note: You can also use export-import within the same device to copy-paste a folder from one location to another within the same app/device and this does not require linking to Dropbox if it is to be transferred within the same app.
