If you are on a free or basic plan of Octoparse, you may notice that the total number of tasks is limited to 10. You cannot create new tasks once your task count reaches that number. If you have no intent to go premium or anything, you can edit the existing tasks instead of creating a new one. In this article, I will show you how to edit existing tasks in Octoparse.

Follow the next few steps:

Step 1. Click open the Dashboard for all your tasks

Step 2. Click on any existing task to enter the workflow designer 

You can also click the three dots under More, choose Task >then Edit

Step 3. Click on the three dots of any step you don't need, and select delete from the pop-up menu

 Step 4. Modify the settings for actions in the existing workflow to suit your new needs. Happy Data Hunting!
