Run WordPress Import on a Schedule

The Automatic Scheduling service allows you to set up imports with just a couple of clicks. Rather than setting up cron jobs on your server, you can set schedules directly within WP All Import. The Automatic Scheduling service will then contact your site at the scheduled time to run your imports, and check in to make sure they've completed correctly.

Automatic Scheduling vs Manual Scheduling

WP All Import offers two ways to schedule or automate imports. The first option is to manually create the cron jobs in the server. The second option is to use our paid Automatic Scheduling Service, which is integrated within WP All Import and doesn't require any setup.

This guide focuses on Automatic Scheduling.

Configure a Scheduled WordPress Import

To set up the Automatic Scheduling Service on an existing import, navigate to the Manage Imports page. Then, click on Scheduling Options › Automatic Scheduling:

The same Scheduling Options menu appears when creating a new import.

There you decide whether you'd like your import to run weekly or monthly. Then you select the days and times that you would like your import to run.

Sign Up for Automatic Scheduling
