Crawling: once or continuous

When you set up a data source, you specify whether you want NOW Privacy to crawl the data just once or continuously.

Every time a crawl finishes, NOW Privacy checks the status of its crawl mode.

Crawl Once

When the crawl finishes, NOW Privacy won’t crawl the data source again until you rerun the crawl manually.


When the crawl finishes, it automatically restarts.

You can change from Crawl Once mode to Continuous mode whenever you want. If you make this change when the crawl is not running, you’ll need to run it manually when you want to start it. After that, it will run continuously.
