Today I experienced the following case: I wanted to update a published app, so I made a back-up (export) of the app first and then duplicated the published app. Then I started to work on the duplicated app in my personal stream. After I was done with the modifications, I wanted to republish the app. So far so good. Then I discovered that the duplicated nor the exported (back-up) app didn't contain the bookmarks, stories and (unapproved) sheets anymore other (end) users had contributed while the app was published.
Is there a way to preserve the unpublished app-objects when working on an app update? I have thought about letting them duplicate the entire app so that they can modify it in their personal stream, but then it would not be updated by a task which the published app has.So this is not really a solution.
I'm looking forward to your ideas on this matter!
Thanks in advance!
