The File Transfer Protocol is a network protocol used for the transfer of computer files between a client and a server on a computer network.FTP connector allows the downloading of source files and uploading of target files directly to/from the FTP server.

Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for the connector:

  • Project Managers can add files directly to projects from an online repository.

  • Set up the submitter portal to allow Submitters to add files to requests directly from the online repository.

  • Use Automated Project Creation (APC) to have Memsource automatically create new projects when a change in the last modified date is detected for monitored files or a folder.

    • Selected files are imported the very first time APC runs. All files are imported when a folder is monitored.

  • Set up Continuous Jobs to have Memsource monitor selected files for changes.
