Scheduled imports and exports can be run on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. The files to be imported or exported can be located on local Magento servers, or on remote FTP servers. Scheduled Import/Export is implemented by default, and does not require additional configuration. All scheduled imports and exports are managed by the Cron job scheduler.
To access the scheduled import/export:
|1.||On the Admin menu, select System > Import/Export > Scheduled Import/Export.|
|2.||To create a new scheduled import or export job, click the Add Scheduled Import or Add Scheduled Export button. After saving the record, a new scheduled import or export is added to the list on the Scheduled Import/Export page.|
|3.||After each scheduled import and export operation, a copy of the import or export file is placed in the var/log/import_export/%Y%/%m%/%d%/ directory on the Magento local server.|
After each import job, a reindex operation is performed automatically.
