In the first part, we describe how automatic data regeneration works.


Answers to frequently asked questions on how to automatically regenerate data in Mergado

Mergado feeds regenerate itself, several times a day.

The answer can be found on the Export History page -> after filtering the "Applying Rules" event. The more often the input feed is changed, the more often Mergado tries to download data - and thus to regenerate.

Click Settings -> General -> here you find a button to pause/resume a paused regeneration.

Yes. If you use Bidding Fox Elements with many active elements, the regeneration time increases. Keep only those elements that you use (used in queries, rules, etc.). Also, be sure to "add" the rules correctly, considering the complexity of their processing.

Yes, just click the appropriate button, and the regeneration process will end. If the regeneration is not complete, the output feed can not be updated - so you do not have to worry about interrupting the regeneration if necessary.

Yes, the regeneration process is in the background, and once it starts, you can easily click away, close the page, browser, or even shut down your computer.

By clicking on the progress bar, e. g. on the Products page, while the regeneration is in progress, you will be taken to the page with the current status or the result of the last regeneration.
