Exporting Bean Configurations with the Features Module


In this lesson we will cover all the settings that are new available in the Features module from the Bean module.  We will update our current feature with all of the settings we have configured from creating different Bean types. We will discuss what has been added and be reminded that content is not stored in the feature.  It is good practice to setup all of your configurations and get those configurations into code, then move those settings to your final environment before you start creating content.
