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 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 US…and the Canadian outputs,…but all the material is 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 US 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 US output,…the same thing happens.…
I get the material that applies to all users,…plus the US output,…and in this example, I'm saying include anything applying…
