How Cloudpress works

Introduction

Cloudpress allows you to export documents from Google Docs to your Content Management System (CMS). Cloudpress does this by exporting the content from your Google Doc in the appropriate format to your CMS.

As far as is possible, Cloudpress will preserve the existing formatting of your document. It will also export any images you embedded in your document, upload them separately to your CMS and then link to the newly uploaded images in your document.

Linked Accounts

One of the central concepts of Cloudpress is linked accounts. You allow Cloudpress to export content to your CMS by linking your CMS account to Cloudpress.

Currently, Cloudpress supports exporting to WordPress, Contentful, Kentico Cloud, and Sanity, so you can link accounts from any of those to Cloudpress.

Exporting Documents

You can export documents from Google Docs to any linked account. Cloudpress will take care of converting the document to the appropriate format for your Content Management System. It will also take care of uploading any images embedded in the document to the destination system.

When you export a document with Cloudpress, it will add the document to an export queue. This means that the document may not be exported immediately once you have selected to export it.

Factors that can affect the time it takes to export a document are the number of images and the size of those images.

In reality, however, documents will typically be available within a few seconds after you have chosen to export it.

Re-exporting documents

Cloudpress also allows you to re-export any document after it has been exported initially. In this case, Cloudpress will overwrite the content of the document on the destination service with the updated content from Google Docs.

Cloudpress does not do two-way sync. If you made changes to the content on the destination service and then re-export the document, the changes made on the destination system will be overwritten.
