List features covered
Now, let's get started!
Step 1. Set up basic information
Step 2. Navigate to the target website
Step 3. Create a list of items
To proceed with the extraction, we'll first need to build a list of items to extract from.
Move your cursor over the youtube listings with similar layout, where you would extract the data needed.
Notice that, we had not selected the whole section properly in the first place. Hence we will need to expand the selection to ensure the whole section has been accurately selected.
Now, the first item has been added to the list, we need to finish adding all items to the list
Now we get all the sections added to the list.
Step 4. Select the data to be extracted
Now, we have arrived on the detail page which we would like to capture data from. Click on the specific data to extract
Step 5. Rename Data Fields
Rename the any field names if necessary.
