Import posts from accounts

The software is able to load posts from Posting accounts, even if the posts were placed manually or by some other software. Once the posts are loaded, you can manage them in the software as if they were posted natively. Most common things you can do is:

  • Renew posts (only if the corresponding classified web site supports and allows renewing);
  • Delete posts
  • Take the contents of the post and re-post it

You can load posts only from the Posting accounts (e.g. Craigslist accounts, Backpage accounts, Kijiji accounts etc.). Therefore, first of all you need to make sure that you have one or more Validated posting accounts in the database. Once you have that, select one or more accounts in the list (software will use them to load posts), right-click and select Add bulk task->Import posts from accounts.

Next, you can specify time frame for the posts to be loaded. For example, you can limit operation to load only those posts that are 1 month old. If you do not place any time restrictions, the software will attempt to load as many posts as it sees available in the account.

Finally, you can set the Schedule for this task. If left empty, the task will start immediately, as soon as you click "Finish" button. Otherwise, it will be scheduled to run at the time (or times) of your choice. This article covers scheduling feature in detail.

This feature creates a Bulk task. Please read more about bulk tasks and how to manage them here
