Sharing, reusing and backing up your Moobot settings ♻️

You can share your Moobot's settings to other Twitch streamers, use them on other dashboards where you're an editor, or back them up locally.

This also means you can import settings that others have shared with you. E.g. a special chat command someone has built.

Moobot's Import & Export menu gives you the tools to export your settings to a file, import from such an export file, or import directly from a dashboard where you're an editor.

You can also fully adjust which exact settings you import or/and export.
