Importing and exporting tasks

Tasks may be imported and exported, one at a time, using the "Import" or "Export" button at the end of the task editor.


To import a task, use the "Start a custom task" button on the Mechanic homepage.

On the next screen, scroll to the end of the task editor, and click the Import button.

Paste your task JSON into the import area.

All task data found in the supplied JSON will be loaded into the current task. After pasting, you'll be instructed to close the modal, and you may then work with and/or save the resulting task.


When working with an existing task, find the "Export" button at the end of the task editor.

On the next screen, copy the JSON found in the export box. This JSON is a complete representation of the entire task (including all documentation and configured options).
