How to use same Source Files for New Versions of Product (Content Repurpose for future product releases)?

Suppose, I have created a Project in RoboHelp for a Product N1 and generated WebHelp from it. Now with the release of Product N2, I upgraded the content in the same source files.

Now, I want RoboHelp to generate the conditional based output. The changes marked for new release (N2) should show in WebHelp for Product N2, but when I compile it again for Product N1, the updated content of N2 should not be included in it (N1 Web Help).

Please provide me the steps to fulfil this requirement.

If you have done your tagging correctly, you have untagged content that goes into both outputs and then some content tagged N1 and some tagged N2. When you generate you apply a tag to exclude one of those.
