Projects can be exported from Dovetail can be re-imported at any time. This allows you to export projects from one workspace and re-import it to another. You can also modify your data and re-import it to leverage Dovetail’s features.
Workspace admins can export a whole project into a .zip file, containing a series of JSONL files. JSONL is a file type where each line in the file is a JSON object and each JSONL file represents an object type in Dovetail (eg. notes, insights, etc.)
To export a whole project, open the project's settings > Export > Export entire project > Download.
Once the export has been prepared, click the Download button on the prompt to download the .zip file to your device.

Users with contributor access have the ability to import Dovetail projects at any time.
To do this, navigate to Projects > Create new > Project from files > Import an existing project.
Once you’ve selected your file, Dovetail handles importing it for you. And based on your notification preferences, you’ll be alerted when the import is finished.
