Batch Publishing

Abstract

Batch publishing lets you publish multiple publications at the same time, with a single action. It is more convenient than starting each publication process manually.

Batch publishing lets you publish multiple publications at the same time, with a single action. It is more convenient than starting each publication process manually, and is especially useful when you need to update many outputs at the same time. For example, if you publish to Zendesk and want to update several categories at once. In this scenario, you can set up a publication for each category and then use batch publishing to publish to them all with a single click of a button.

To use batch publishing:

  1. For each publication that you want to publish:

    1. Select the options menu ( ... ) for the publication.

    2. On the Publish Document dialog, apply the publishing settings that you want to use. These include the languages, filter profiles, variables, etc.

    3. Select Save Settings and then give the saved publishing settings a name.

    4. Close the Publish document dialog without publishing.

  2. Select your profile, and then select Batch Publish from the menu. Alternatively, select the Dashboard menu, and then select the Batch Publish icon.
