Do I have to do each Database Schema one-byone?
wadehults

If you are retaining the structure of all databases as an exact mirror, you can simply select all of the database schemas and compact them into a single file. The only reason you should need to do individual schema exports would be in a situation where you have different domains served from different servers.

The self-contained sql file will contain all of the databases selected, all tables, and all records. This includes all views and queries that are contained within the database schema, unless you select the option to exclude data and only keep the structure.
