Backstage offers three types of profiles: Regular (for actors/performers), Voiceover (for voiceover talent), and Crew (for industry professionals). If you have an existing profile on Backstage and want to create a new type of profile on the same account, you now have the option to import data from your existing profile to the new profile. For example, if you have a Regular profile and want to create a Voiceover profile, you can import all or just some of the data over to your new profile.
***Note: You cannot have multiple profiles of the same type on an account. You can also only import data during the creation stage of the new profile - existing profiles do not have this option (yet!)
How to Import Your Data
1. First navigate to Edit Profile and click on the Switch Profile button.
2. You'll then see a drop down menu where you can create a new type of profile. Select the type you want.
3. You'll then see a screen that asks you if you want to import your data.
You can either choose to import or not (it is not mandatory). If choosing to import, you'll notice that you can uncheck boxes if you only want to import certain parts of your profile.
4. After you've decided which sections you want to import, you can then press the Create [Type of] Profile button to create your new profile.
You'll be greeted with a confirmation pop up screen.
