Decisions allows for the Importing and Exporting of Entities and Projects.  This allows for the easy transfer of Flows, Forms, and Entities between Users.  Our examples will go through the process of Exporting a single entity and an entire project. Binary serialized data members are not supported.
Example:
Exporting Single Entity
First, we locate a thumbnail for the Flow we want to export and from its Action menu select Import/Export > Export.

Mention, that when we associate an entity with the Project, there are new Actions created for the entity Export . From entity Action menu we select Import/Export > Export > Export Dependencies option. This option allows the user to Export the dependencies associated with this Entity. Or we could select Remove From project, which removes the association of the project to the Entity.
