There are basically two steps to setup with WP-All-Import
Map the file
Set up Cron triggering (only if you have pro)
The file is generated in a fixed url location
So when you start to set up, it is a good idea to have run a successful test, and check a valid and meaningful property.xml file has been created.
Once created, you can start creating a new import, using ‘download from a url’
your setting will look a little bit like this
After that you will have to map your fields into the appropriate custom post type for your property plugin.
Mapping is really beyond the scope of the plugin, however I do have my own mapping file that works for my instance of EasyPropertyLettings, I can share this with anyone, but you may need to tweak it.
Set up cron triggering to process straight through, requires the pro version of All Import.
First follow All Imports documentation on setting up cron triggering http://www.wpallimport.com/documentation/recurring/cron/
EXCEPT only set up one job in cron, the second one (execution script URL)
at the TRIGGER SCRIPT URL is to be fired by the plugin NOT Cron
Then you need to copy the TRIGGER SCRIPT URL to the setting page of the plugin
Hope that helps
