How exporting differs from producing

Exporting items is different from producing items in the following ways:

In effect, the export feature provides a less formal way to copy items out of Discovery Accelerator for offline review.

You do not have to wait until the end of the reviewing process to carry out production; you can produce the items that you have reviewed at any time. You can then carry out productions of further items later, after they have been reviewed. If you use the same output folder and production run name for multiple runs, Discovery Accelerator overwrites the report summary each time.

If you carry out a production run and then something goes wrong with the files that you have produced - for example, they are accidentally deleted - you can reproduce the items. However, once you have successfully produced items, you cannot undo the process.
