Indexing Options

Doofinder indexes product data daily during the night because these are the hours when there is less traffic on the web by default.

However, this feature allows you to schedule the index tasks as a CRON. The system utility cron can be used to schedule programs to run automatically at predetermined intervals. In this case, you can choose between indexing your feed once a day, periodically, configuring a time interval between index or scheduling specific timing (maximum six times a day).

📌 Note: This feature is not supported if indexing via API.

To access these options, please go to your Admin Panel > Indices and click on ‘Indexing options‘ link.

A pop-up window will appear and once you click on the «Enable automatic indexing» checkbox, the possible time interval options will be displayed:

  • Index my data every day: This is the default selection. Doofinder will continue to index the product data daily during the night.
  • Index periodically every …. hours: Enter the number of hours for the desired time interval.
  • Index at specific times: Click on ‘Add schedule’ to enter the: hour, minute, day of the week and day of the month according to the ‘User timezone’ configured in your profile section, Account > User> Profile.

Once you have scheduled your indexing task, click ‘Save’.

Should you encounter any problems, please contact support@doofinder.com.
