Data Export


Linear offers a variety of exporting formats for exporting calendar events, directory listings and movies. You can customize and save multiple export settings. Using style sheets and templates you have the ability to customize and define your configuration settings. The primary purpose for exporting is to retrieve your data for the print publication. Export Configurations allow you to define the data and style sheets to be used when exporting. For example, you might have one export configuration when exporting Ongoing Calendar events and another configuration when exporting Calendar events sorted by Venue.

Exporting Calendar records is a fast and easy way to convert your Internet calendar data to Quark style sheets for inclusion in your print publication. Only the events posted to your public web site will be exported. Once you save your export Settings, the system will return a link allowing your to open the Export Results and save them for importation into your publication system. Sometimes it is helpful to save your Export Settings for future use. This is especially important for Linear clients who export their Calendar information in a variety of formats. You can sort by the date, by the category or by the title. When "Date" is chosen, your calendar will be exported with a header for each date and the events will be sorted by title below the date. You can select "subcategory and your calendar will be exported with a header for each category and the events will be sorted by title below the category. You can export using standard calendar events, ongoing calendar information or calendar events sorted by venue. You can also define a number of categories and styles to be added to the standard version in order to create a more personalized export setting.

Exporting Movie data records is a fast and easy way to convert your Internet Movie information data to style sheets for inclusion in your print publication. Exporting directories is especially useful to publications which routinely include this type of information in their print product. For example, a publication could ask advertisers to check and correct their directory listings on the web site for inclusion in the print product. When exported, the directory will include Quark style sheet information so that it literally moves from the Internet to the print product in about one minute!

Quotes
times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
