For tasks in the same categories, you can now batch modify all the tasks at one time by choosing Group-level operation. Besides, you can initiate other actions as well in the Start Interface. This means that in most cases you don’t need to edit the task from the beginning anymore, like refreshing, renaming the group, scheduling Cloud Extraction! Just click on the setting icon and relevant instructions at the right will be prompted. It’s also available for the task solely.

The newly released version, Octoparse 6.4.1, added two API Interfaces for users: Get Task Data based on storage time and Get Task Data from the last Cloud Extraction. This greatly helps users to get the data they want extracted in a different time when they use API.
