Overall Satisfaction with Dataloader.io
When we need to extract mass data to scrub for errors/gaps, acquire customer lists/company data we need to import into Salesforce, dataloader.io is the tool we rely on to complete these, sometimes very large, extractions or imports. Its pretty well a seamless integration and solid platform to use to parse through volumes of information within your SF CRM.
- Splitting data between object sets
- Mass upload/Insert ability makes changing multiple data sets on multiple fields very simple
- Ease of use. One of the few instances Salesforce data correlation is very black and white.
- The lag time doing large data sets can be tricky. Especially if you have errors.
- It sometimes does not feel very stable; can error out multiple times for no real reason
- Custom integration support needed
- HUGE time saving. When we need to clean or review data, we used to have to do it line by line. This can do the work within excel and make cleanup/management an afternoons work as opposed to a week.
- Rollback what you did/change/deleted is relatively simple if you remember to back up the data you are manipulating.
I do not know of another tool out there that works this well with Salesforce. I am not even sure if anything else out there this simple exists.
If you have a basic administrative understanding of how Salesforce works (objects, cross-object, fields) then using this tool can be very simple with some basic guides and playing around if you're intuitive enough.

It is a great tool for parsing data. Nothing terribly diffiuclt about its function other than the basic knowledge of field nomenclature within SF and its related objects. If you have a basic Admin understanding of how SF operates, the dataloader tool will be pretty simple to use, understand and teach.
