Single Dataloader: Overview

ARM Dataloader allows you to configure your data loading operations in convenient, user-friendly GUI wizards. It also allows you to import, export, and delete unlimited amounts of Salesforce data without typing a line of code. Its powerful, yet easy-to-understand scheduling settings enable you to specify almost any kind of schedule quickly. You can schedule any data loading operation for automatic execution.

When to use Single Dataloader

  1. You need to load 50,000 to 5,000,000 records. Dataloader is supported for loads of up to 5 million records. If you need to load more than 5 million records, we recommend you work with a Salesforce partner or visit the AppExchange for a suitable partner product.
  2. You need to load into an object that the import wizards do not support yet.
  3. You want to schedule regular data loads, such as nightly imports.
  4. You want to export your data for backup purposes.
