Is it possible to copy or export metadata from Folio Producer?

Mar 9, 2012 10:07 AM



Is it possible to copy or export metadata from one issue in Folio Producer and import/apply it to a different issue in Folio Producer? Or create a master metadata template that every issue build could use? It would save a lot of time and typing not having to re-enter the same information every month when releasing the next issue for departments, bylines, etc.

    You can't export metadata yet, but you can create a sidecar.xml file: 6c7754128c7a9c00e-7fff.html

    Do you know when exporting metadata from Folio Producer will be available, and will it export directly to another rendition, or would it export to a sidecar.xml file?


    The workflow my team prefers is to build our 1024x768 folio first, add metadata via Properties in the Folio Builder as we add articles, share the folio with editors and advertising sales, make edits and updates, then when all content is approved, create the 2048x1536 rendition folio using multiple importing of articles.


    Having the ability to export from an existing folio in Folio Producer would save tons of tedious copying/pasting to get a sidecar.xml.


    Hopefully when this becomes available you'll have a big announcement. (Please?)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Bob,


    now over 1 and a half year ago, are there some plans to export a XML out of the Folio Producer?


    We have the same workflow as Mark in our agency and a XML-export would make our production a lot easier!

    We don't currently have plans to add this functionality.
