Imagine taking one of your monstrous, days-long tasks and condensing it into just a few clicks. With Advanced Workflows, you can do just that: set up a task once and let GoAnywhere MFT do the rest. The full scope of Advanced Workflows is vast; dive deep into this popular Project-builder that helps you automate and manipulate data movement throughout your enterprise.
The Advanced Workflows module is one of several unlockable features that expands security, encryption, and automation elements already built into GoAnywhere MFT. Workflows, also known as Projects in GoAnywhere, let you line up and run tasks back-to-back automatically.
The core of Advanced Workflows is the ability to effortlessly design Projects with a drag-and-drop wizard. Even without a programming background, anyone can construct a Project from start to finish, then automate file transfers using either GoAnywhere’s built-in scheduler or the scheduler your business already uses.

Save time and money with Advanced Workflows. Reduce the incidence of human error by moving disparate tasks usually done manually into a centralized workflow. Stay abreast of your file transfers with Advanced Workflows:
Like a Rube Goldberg machine, let one event set off the next. Create triggers that watch for certain events, including file uploads or downloads, or even when a login fails. Based on information you specify, GoAnywhere will take the next steps and keep you informed about what’s going on in the background.
Cloud Connectors give you the freedom to link GoAnywhere with popular web and cloud apps like Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive. Simply specify the cloud connection properties once, and re-use them again and again.
If your trading partners provide data in formats your database doesn’t accept, or vice versa, let Advanced Workflows do the heavy lifting for you. Translate to and from formats including EDI X12, CSV, and XLS all within the software – and you only have to outline the translation process for Advanced Workflows once.

Advanced Workflows can be self-referential: create one workflow that multiple Projects can call or reference instead of reinventing the wheel each time you need to carry out similar steps. For example, let Advanced Workflows encrypt and decrypt data for each of your file transfers automatically.
Troubleshoot individual Projects smoothly. You can run each Project in debug mode, and interactively execute tasks one at a time to find a problem area either before a Project goes live, if you notice errors, or if changes occur in your process down the line.
Delve into the unexplored. With more than 100 tasks available in the component library, workflows are constrained only by your imagination. GoAnywhere users have automated hundreds of tasks and simplified their business activities in the process. Some top examples include:
Line up tasks back-to-back to compress, encrypt, convert, and even do simple file system tasks. Shorten your tasks from multi-day undertakings to automated projects with Advanced Workflows.
