How often does Doofinder index the Product Feed?

Doofinder indexes product data daily by default when the automatic option is activated by enabling the automatic indexing option.

However, this feature allows you to schedule the index tasks as a CRON. The system utility cron can be used to schedule programs to run automatically at predetermined intervals. In this case, you can choose between indexing your feed once a day, periodically, configuring a time interval between index or scheduling specific timing (maximum six times a day).

🗒 This feature is not supported if indexing via API.

How to Configure Indexing Options

To access these options, please go to your Admin Panel, Search Engine > Settings > Indices and click on 'Configuration'.
