Update content in Whatfix Store

Once the Whatfix Store extension is installed, you can manage all your content updates using the extension card without having to rerun the PowerShell script.

You don't have to manually update your Whatfix Store extension whenever you update your Whatfix content. When you push your Whatfix content and widgets to the Production stage, your Whatfix Store extension is automatically updated. For more information on how to push Whatfix content and widgets to Production, see Push Whatfix content and widgets to Production. You will receive an email once your extension is updated.
