You have content strewn across different data sources in online storage repositories to retrieve them when you need them.

At Paperflite, our objective is to ensure all your content is just a few clicks away. So, if you are looking to use your repository, where you have stored all your content in one place, then yippee! We have got your back on this one.

Our storage integrations for content include Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Sharepoint, and RSS Feed.

In this article, you will learn how to:

  • Connect a content source

  • Migrate a content source

Connecting a content source

Head to Settings within Paperflite and navigate to Content Sources.

Choose the content source that you want to connect to and log in to the respective source account.

Once you’re logged in, the content source will be available below the connected sources section.

Once you’re done adding the source, it's time to bring all your content into the streams. Here’s how you can do it.

Migrating a content source

Migrating refers to the process of moving your data from one platform to another. With Paperflite, migrating your data source is very simple.

Here’s how you can do it:

Head to Settings within Paperflite and navigate to Content Sources.

Choose the respective content source that you want to migrate to your Paperflite cloud. Click on Migrate.

Note: The content has to be pulled into the Streams from your content source beforehand.

Once you hit Migrate, a pop-up window will appear for confirmation. Please be sure to read all the pointers mentioned before confirming the migration.

Note: Once you hit migrate, all the content that you had pulled into Paperflite will get stored in the Paperflite cloud, and the content source mapping will automatically get deleted from your stream.

The migration will take place upon hitting confirmation and is timebound completely based on the number of assets at the source. Once you migrate the data, you cannot undo it.
