Single-sourcing means you can create one source of content and either a) extract subsets of the content to create different outputs for different audiences or b) use chunks of the content in multiple places in multiple projects. The first definition, creating multiple outputs from one source, is supported by a Flare feature called conditionality. The second definition, content re-use, is supported by two features called snippets and variables. Learn more about conditions, snippets, and variables, and how to create and use them.
- [Voiceover] In this video, you'll learn two definitions…of single sourcing and how Flare's features support…both definitions.…The first definition is the selective use of some…or all of the material in a project in order…to create different outputs.…For example, let's say this is a project…and out of this project I want to create the U.S.…and the Canadian outputs but all the material's mixed up…so it's hard to break it apart.…But what I can do is actually break different material…into different topics so some of this…might be U.S. material.…
Some of this might be Canadian material.…Some of this might be material that everybody gets.…So that's "All."…And now, what I can do is when I go to generate,…say, the Canadian output, I tell Flare,…"include only material that's either Canadian specific…"or that applies to everybody."…And what I get is "All," plus "Canadian."…When I tell it generate the U.S. output, the same thing…happens, I get the material that applies to all users…plus the U.S. output and in this example, I'm saying,…
