Updated on 2011-10-29 04:50:54
Within QuantShare, you can instruct a specific downloader to start automatically every N-day. You can for example instruct you favorite EOD data downloader to retrieve historical data once a day or your weekly item to get its report once a week.
- Select "Download" then "Download Manager"
- Select a download item then click on the "+" icon next to its name (Second column in the "Download Items" grid)
- In the "Auto-Download" form, update the field under "This item should download data every". By setting this field to one, you instruct the downloader to run every day.
- Click on "OK" to save
- Note how the "+" icon changed to a red circle. This means that the automatic download setting is active.
You repeat the same process with another download item.
Now when you open QuantShare the next day, the item will automatically start downloading data (at application startup).
If you want to run the downloader every few minutes then take a look at the following how-to article:
