Can I schedule or automate imports?

Danielle Kellogg Updated by Danielle Kellogg

To schedule or automate imports, you will need to use a service like Zapier or our API.

Using Zapier, you can create rules (zaps) that will import records from hundreds of other services. For example, you could have each new row added to a Google Sheet created as a record in one of your apps on a daily basis. For more information on using Zapier with your Knack apps, take a look here: Knack + Zapier.

If you want to design the automation yourself, you can use the Knack API. You'll find our API documentation here:


How did we do?

Do the validation rules on fields trigger when importing data?

Can my users import data from the live app, instead of going through the builder/back-end?
