Schedule Unattended & Recurring Imports

Schedule Unattended & Recurring Imports

Overview of Importing

If you have a large import that you want to run, you should consider scheduling the import to occur during a period of minimum activity on your SharePoint farm. Scheduling imports to run unattended is also useful if you have an import process that needs to run periodically with the same configuration parameters.

To modify a scheduled import, see Modify a Scheduled Import.

Icon-WarningIMPORTANT: Before scheduling an import to run unattended, you must have configured the import and saved the parameters in a configuration file. This is done as the last step in an import process.
