Working on the same website from desktop and laptop

Issue Summary

One or two sentence summary of the issue.

How can I get websites that I work on on my desktop to show up on my laptop so I can work on them while im away from my desktop?

i am logged into my account on my desktop and laptop, but the websites are only showing up on my desktop, which is where I first created the website i’m working on.

Thanks.

Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Thank you for your question, to clarify, your Local account doesn’t store or persist information across machines as it is all local to the computer the site is created on.

What you can do is export the site from one device and import onto your other device.
