DownloadFile not delayed/queued


I am currently testing SeoTools for Excel to scrape some online shop data and so far it is great.

But I noticed the =DownloadFile() function is ignoring the delay from the http settings panel.

I set there a delay between 3 and 4 seconds to not get blocked. It works for all functions so far, but not for the DownloadFile one. All the images are downloaded immediately. No queue appears in the bottom right corner.

Is this normal behavior? And how can I delay the downloads?

I would be very grateful for any help.


No one here who can help?

Hi Manuel,

Thanks for noticing this. The downloadfile function relies on a different web request and not linked to the HttpSettings config. However, this should definitely be addressed in the next release. Will make this a priority and perhaps make a smaller release.

Hi Victor,

that would be great. Thank you very much! :slight_smile:
