The Web App Transfer app allows you to easily and quickly transfer web apps from one Business Catalyst site to another. Or, duplicate a web app on the same site.
This app not only saves a ridiculous amount of time, but also helps reduce mistakes.
Recently, I found myself in a position where I needed to transfer webapps from one website to a new version of that site…for 12 different sites. Each site had between 3 to 8 webapps. The Web App Transfer app saved me a ton of time on this project, and not just in terms of time. Since the app transfers the fields and layout files exactly as they are I didn't have to spend time making sure I typed each field name exactly as it was. All I did was export and import the webapp, then export and import the webapp data and BOOM, I was done. None of those 'little errors' that can occur during a manual transfer. A huge time and headache saver.

Q: Do I need to re-purchase the app every time I want to install it to a new site?
A: No, you purchase this app once and can install it on all your current sites and future sites (in Partner Portal).
Q: Are all custom fields transfered?
A: Yes, however if you name a custom field the same as a system field (name, release date, etc), the app will slightly change the name of the custom field by appending a number. For example, "Name" becomes "Name 0". You will need to manually update any updated field names after the transfer.
Q: How does a data source field get transfered?
A: The data source field is unique as it's dependent on another web app. This app will assign the data source field to its own web app. You can manually update the data source field after the transfer.
Q: Do the web app items get transferred too?
A: No. To transfer web app items use the standard import/export method.
Q: If my transferred web app had a page template assigned as the Default Template, what happens after the web app is transferred?
A: "Don’t use a template" is selected. Manually assign a new Default Template in the web app settings after the transfer.
Q: What happens if there is already a web app with the same name in the site the web app is being transferred?
A: There will be an error, and the web app won’t be transferred. The transferred web app must have a unique name.
Improved order functionality, fixed protected keyword case sensitivity bug, updated instructions
Fixed "order bug"
System Field Name Fix: Now when a custom field has the same name as a system field (name, release date, etc), the app slightly changes the name of the field by appending a number to the end. For example, "Name" becomes "Name 0".
Fixed missing update button in settings layout.
