Requirement of Mirroring the collection hierarchy in QPP


This new feature of Quark Publishing Platform would be very helpful if a user needs to checkout two assets at the same time, that are saved in two different Collections and have same file name,



By default, Quark Publishing Platform clients mirror the collection hierarchy on their local


drive when they check out or get an asset. However, you can change this option.
