All Localist Enterprise licenses include access to a unique staging environment to be used as a testing sandbox. Staging is accessible to Platform Admins by navigating to Settings > Platform Settings > Access the Platform Sandbox (right side box). The Platform Admin will be redirected to the staging environment homepage as an already logged in user.
Can you sync Staging with Production?
Nope! It is not possible to sync data from Staging to Production. Any additions and custom modifications will need to be manually copied into your Production platform.
When should we use our Staging Environment?
Staging can be used to test branding changes (CSS, HTML, SILK Wrapper, etc) and Feeds. However, please note that if you add a Feed, it will import once but it will not automatically import each night.
