If you set up multiple WordPress sites, then you likely have a set number of plugins you use for each site, especially if you utilized a redirection plugin to transfer traffic and SEO from another site. Unfortunately, installing each one every time can get tedious and time-consuming.

Instead of installing them over again, this feature gives you the ability to create as many lists of your items as you want, and you can install them with just one click and once created collection can be used on any site since it is all stored in a cloud.
