How to Import and Export Magento 2 Page Builder

Page Builder is a content-making suite unique to the Magento 2 Commerce and Cloud editions. With the functionality, you can control the way the pages are displayed in your store and arrange page content with the help of various specialized tools.

Taking several steps ahead in comparison to the WYSIWYG editor, Page Builder brings innovations into the content generation process. The software breaks down a page design into separate elements (e.g., headers, buttons, etc.) while all of them are fully customizable. The Drag and Drop functionality allows toggling such elements and creating unique layouts.

How can you benefit from the feature? If you run a B2B business you know well the number of challenges each part of routine comes with. To attract visitors to make a deal with you, to prove them you are a credible seller, requires much more effort than it seems. B2B clients are proud of their status and the offers you provide must correspond to them in quality.

Magento 2 Page Builder is an essential B2B marketing assistant. The content update schedules help increase marketing impact and reduce the amount of time spent on campaign configuration. Thus, you are able to deliver powerful messages with your products and show clients an example of the services you provide.

How to transfer Magento 2 Page Builder data with Improved Import and Export

Generally speaking, Page Builder is the upgrade of the standard CMS Block and CMS Page functionalities. That means you can transfer the whole page configuration under the familiar CMS Block and Page entities. Improved Import and Export allows doing so as it supports all the Magento 2 entities.

Data import and export with the extension require specifying the entity you want to transfer. You should select ‘CMS Blocks’ if you need to transfer particular elements from the layout, or ‘CMS Pages’ in case you want to implement or extract pages with new design in/from your store. Once you make a choice with the entity, you can proceed with deciding on one of the several types of data behavior to control how the data will enter into your database.

As Magento 2 Improved Import and Export provides users with a variety of sources and data formats, you can run transfers with any combination you are comfortable with. You don’t need to worry about errors you might’ve possibly done while compiling the data file as the extension validates data before enabling the import or export run. If you want to apply massive changes to the data values, you can turn to the advanced mapping functionality.

And that’s it. You can run your transfers trouble-free!
