Exporting and importing settings

A new feature has been added on the beta site: importing and exporting settings! To use this feature, go to the “More…” menu in the top bar and choose “Import/Export Settings…”.

This opens a popup where you can click the big Download button to download a ZIP file containing all of your settings, and a drop-zone for importing a ZIP file you’ve previously downloaded. You can transfer the ZIP file to another computer, open the same popup in a browser and drag it into the Import drop zone to import your settings.

You can also use transfer settings to a different browser on the same computer. Once the feature has been deployed to the main site, you’ll also be able to transfer settings between the beta site and main site.

    Popup says me there’s not available data for my character. What i need to do? Something about permission or visibility from lodestone or s-e account data?

      Character importing has been switched from XIVSync to XIVDB since the XIVSync API has been decommissioned. Please see http://xivdb.com/devblog?id=20 about the recent gearset reset and http://xivdb.com/devblog?id=12 for more information about the gearset feature. Only characters with gearset information for one or more crafting classes can be imported.

      TL;DR: Logout in your crafting gear, find your character on XIVDB and hit the Update button. Come back later to check if your crafting gear appears in the gearsets on XIVDB. If it does, then you can import into our site.
