How Can we Keep Workflow Rules Triggering While Importing New Records or When Updating Existing Records?

Knowledge Article Number 000205664
Description I am importing Accounts and Contacts using either Dataloader, or Import for Accounts and Contacts Wizard.

Can I control these tools, to NOT trigger workflow rules? 
Resolution The Data Import Wizard will eventually replace the existing Import Wizards for Account and Contacts; using either one has an option checkbox to "Trigger workflow rules for new and updated records"

While this is available for the Import Wizards it is not available currently for the Apex Data Loader otherwise referred to as the Data Loader.
