Extract data behind a login, advanced scheduling options, public APIs and new flexible pricing options
Import.io continues to set the standard for data extraction by adding multiple new capabilities that are immediately available.
Authenticated extraction allows Import.io customers to extract data that is only available after logging into a website. You provide the appropriate credentials and Import.io will do the rest. Authenticated extraction is available to all paying customers at no charge apart from customers on a project plan.
Advanced Scheduling is an enhancement to our current scheduling capabilities that gives almost unlimited flexibility over when extractors will run. It is now possible for example to schedule extractions every hour between 9am and 6pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; or once a day during the months of Jan, Feb, and March; or three times a week at 9am. Almost any combination of time, days, weeks, and months is supported. This feature is available at no charge to all customers on paid plans.
Public APIs provide powerful and flexible access to extractors and crawl runs enabling programmatic access to Extractor settings: list of URLs and scheuler settings; Extractor information: Run logs and results in CSV and JSON formats and the ability to submit or cancel an Extractor Run. Documentation is available at http://api.docs.import.io.
More flexible pricing options are now available with the addition of the FLEX plans. These plans allow customers to buy a bucket of queries to be used at any time over the year. It differs from the monthly subscription plans by allowing the queries to carry forward from month to month. There are four flex plans available providing 200k, 1.2m, 2.4m and 6m queries per annum. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure you have access to these new features or upgrade to a FLEX plan.
