How to avoid data being marked as duplicates in the cloud?

Octoparse cloud extraction would identify and delete duplicates automatically. It is convenient when users only need the newly updated data but also causes some problems when they try to compare the results with the last extraction.

Here is one tip for those who need to keep duplicates in the cloud: simply use "Add Pre-defined Fields" to add the extraction time. As the extraction time is always different, every data row would be identified as a new row in the cloud.
