Jitterbit Data Loader


Jitterbit Data Loader (Data Loader) is a free data migration tool that enables Salesforce administrators to quickly and easily automate the import and export of data between flat files, databases, and Salesforce.

Data Loader dramatically reduces the time and effort required to automate the movement of critical business data in and out of Salesforce with built-in scheduling that allows users to "set it and forget it."

Whether you’re importing new marketing leads, exporting sales data for advanced business intelligence, or updating account and contact information from database sources, Data Loader provides the easiest and most functional free tool available.

NOTE: Release notes are available under Cloud Data Loader and the end user license is available at Data Loader End User License Agreement.
