FileCatalyst Workflow is a customizable web portal that simplifies file exchange and boosts productivity by streamlining submission, distribution, and file sharing workflows. Users may submit files to your organization for processing, with full tracking at every stage, or they may securely distribute files to anyone with an email address. In addition “File Areas” allow users to store files in your organization’s local storage or private cloud for collaboration, with online access from anywhere. Additionally, users may send requests to other people outside of your network to send the files.
Forget about dreaded “bounced email” notifications with FileCatalyst Workflow. When used for distribution, FileCatalyst Workflow overcomes email file size limits by acting as a middleman in the file transfer process. Files are sent to the FileCatalyst Server using our Emmy® award-winning file transfer acceleration technology, and the recipients simply receive an email with an accelerated download link.
FileCatalyst Workflow acts as a web portal where your clients can easily upload files. Create custom fields to collect any information (metadata) you need to process the job. Use these fields to collect information including quantities, sizes, special instructions – or any other information you may need.
Once collected, the files and metadata are combined into a “job.” Jobs may go through any number of phases pertaining to your workflow, which is tracked through the system until the job is completed.
FileCatalyst Workflow acts as your organization’s central storage location for one or more “web folders” – keeping all of your files organized and managed. Users have remote access (via a web browser) to shared or personal files from anywhere in the world.
With FileCatalyst Workflow, organizations have the ability to both upload and download files, as well as assign sharing privileges to files on an individual account or group level. Group folders, along with reading/write permissions, can be assigned to any number of users.
1. User Sends File Request link For Target Folder
2. File Request Email
3. File Upload To Targeted Folder
4. Confirmation Email with Link
Access Web Folder Anywhere
The Request Files workflow enables registered users to request files from anyone with an email address. When a request is received by a user, they click a link and are taken to an upload page. Files are uploaded to the folder chosen by the person who sent the file request.
