Automated file transfer software allows users to program when files should move between internal systems, users, or trading partners. This software is often used to manage reoccurring or high-volume file transfers, so other business-critical tasks can be prioritized and pursued.
GoAnywhere MFT is a secure FTP automated file transfer software alternative that lets users quickly automate file transfers and schedule workflows (projects) to run using its built-in scheduler or your existing scheduler software. Workflows can also be automated, executing whenever a file monitor detects new, modified, or deleted files in targeted folders.
Workflows can be called from local and remote command lines, scripts, and programs using the provided commands and APIs. Workflows can additionally be called as Web Services using SOAP or REST requests. To execute Workflows based on user activity, triggers can monitor for events like when a file is uploaded or downloaded.
Within GoAnywhere's browser-based administrator, users can also achieve workflow and file automation by executing projects they're authorized to with a single click.

Executing Projects in GoAnywhere
GoAnywhere MFT can execute multiple workflows concurrently with its job management system. Administrators can define multiple job queues to group workflows that share common characteristics or service level agreements (SLAs). Each job queue can define the priority of their jobs as well as the maximum number of concurrent jobs that can be executed from the queue. Job queues can be managed and prioritized through GoAnywhere's Administrator interface.
Workflows can be executed in Debug mode, which allows users to interactively execute tasks one step at a time. At each stopping point, the values for the variables can be viewed or changed before the next task is executed.
