This feature allows you to make changes to a site in your office or vehicle that can be put into field operation by simply connecting a USB storage device to the GRIDSMART Processor. When you have unpublished changes for a site to which you are not currently connected, clicking Publish on the Site Configuration Screen will present the Publish To Drive dialog.

Publish To Drive will take your unpublished changes and put them onto the selected drive, making that drive into a Data Stick or Drive. Your changes will be published to the corresponding Processor when the Data Stick or Drive is connected to the Processor. The changes will continue to show as unpublished in your Client until the Data Stick or Drive is once again connected to your Client machine with the Client running.

See How to make changes to a site without taking a laptop into the field for more detail.
