The dashboard is your graphical interface to the Import.io data extraction SaaS product. The dashboard houses your existing extractors, account information, settings, and help. Use the dashboard to create new extractors, manage and run existing extractors, and download your data from historical runs.
The dashboard consists of the following areas:
- Current extractor name
- Left-side navigation pane
- Extractor commands menu
- Dashboard tabs
- Administration menu
The name of the currently-selected extractor appears at the top of the dashboard, left of center.
To edit or change the extractor name, click on the name to make the text editable. Type a new name and press Enter or click away from the name to complete the renaming.
The left-side navigation pane appears down the left-hand side of the dashboard. Your extractors are listed there with the most-recently-created extractor listed first by default. Select an extractor name to display and access information about the extractor.
Use the extractor navigation pane options to create a new extractor, search the extractor list, sort the extractor list, and upgrade your Import.io plan.
Click New Extractor to initiate creation of a new extractor.
Use the search feature to locate an extractor by name.
Use the dropdown list to the right of the search box to sort your extractor list by creation date, by name alphabetically, or by last update.
Click Upgrade to access plan pricing details and to upgrade your plan.
Use the extractor commands menu to run, edit, duplicate, and delete the currently-selected extractor, and to download the CSV file from the latest run of the currently-selected extractor. The menu appears in the top right-hand portion of the dashboard.
Use the dashboard tabs to manage extractor settings, run history, and integrations. Use options on these tabs to add urls to your extractor, schedule extractor runs, download data from your run history, and generate API endpoints.
The Run history tab displays the past run information for the currently-selected extractor. For each extractor run, you can download the data, download a change report, download the log file, and preview the data.
The Integrate tab contains API endpoints you can use to integrate your extractor with your own code and various external applications. Import.io provides a RESTful application programming interface (API) to assist you with integration.
Note: The Import.io API is available only with Import.io paid subscriptions.
