Can I extract data on a schedule? 

Friday, August 17, 2018

Yes. Task scheduling is available for tasks running in the Cloud (for premium plans ). With Octoparse, you can get updated data by running your task on a pre-defined schedule, such as every 1-min, every 5-min or every Wednesday of the week, etc. 

To set a schedule for any task, 
1. Click "Start Extraction" on the upper left-hand side
2. Click "Set a Schedule"
3. Define the schedule
 
Follow the step-by-step instructions in this tutorial to set up a schedule.

Note:

1. The next scheduled task will only be executed after the current one gets completed or it will be skipped. 
2. Once you've finished setting up a task schedule, you can further save the setting/configuration for future use.

3. Currently, there’s no task scheduling feature for local extraction.
