Automation

 

Automation is key in today’s world. Not only can it help reduce human error, it can save time and cut costs.

If you’re looking for automatic file transfer software to help support your automation goals, you’ve come to the right place! Forget scripts, homegrown processes, and legacy PC tools. Automatic file transfer software, like GoAnywhere MFT allows its users to effortlessly configure when files should move between internal systems, other users, or trading partners.

This software is often used to manage recurring or high-volume file transfers, so other business-critical tasks can be simultaneously pursued and efficiently prioritized. Whether you send a dozen file transfers a week, hundreds a day, or more, automation is a smart and beneficial step to boost your business.

Automation is Key

Automatic File Transfer Software with GoAnywhere

File transfer automation is a powerful tool. As a secure FTP automation software solution, GoAnywhere MFT lets users quickly automate file transfers and schedule projects to run using its built-in scheduler or any existing scheduler software. Built-in scheduling allows for executing workflows at future dates and times. You can schedule workflows as “one time” or to run every minute, every hour, or every day – whatever or whenever your preference.

Calendars can even be easily customized to ensure workflows don’t run on days they shouldn’t. Workflows (Projects) can also be automated, executing whenever a file monitor detects new, modified, or deleted files in targeted folders. The file monitor can also alert you if an error occurs during the process, such as a file failing to reach its intended location. Goodbye manual work, hello simplicity!

Workflows can be called from local and remote command lines, scripts, and programs using the provided commands and APIs. They 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. Setting a trigger allows you to set in motion a sequence of actions prompted by an event. Triggers eliminate the time-consuming process of manually completing routine follow-up tasks.

Executing Projects in GoAnywhere

Users can achieve workflow and file automation with a single click within GoAnywhere’s browser-based administrator. GoAnywhere MFT can not only execute multiple projects with its job management system, administrators can define multiple job queries to group projects 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 also 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.

Don’t Wait – Automate!
