How do I apply Group Extraction when using ActionScript?
ActionScript is useful when scraping specific elements that require mouse or keyboard actions to load more data on a website, as shown below. If you are curious about how to use both the ActionScript and Group Extraction features in Listly, please read on to learn more!
Quick start guide
➡️ Scrape page 1 → use ActionScript → redo web scraping → verify a tab to scrape → apply Group Extraction
⚠️ The thing is, ActionScript should be applied to your web scraping job first before starting Group Extraction.
If this step is missing, you may encounter a tap matching error because your web scraping bot cannot identify data patterns to scrape from the given RULs.
