I asked one of my customers (thank you Chris) if he had some ideas for new features. The result .. four really nice ideas.
First – being able to create destinations that you can pick when you are setting-up jobs would be helpful. Primarily, FTP, SFTP, FTPS. For instance if I want to have 5 separate jobs that need the same FTP information and credentials. I would like to be able to save connection information to use it when creating the FTP, SFTP, destination.
Second – We have occasions to copy a file or files to a directory on a whole set of servers. It would be helpful if we could move one or multiple files to a directory on several servers in one job. Maybe by subnet, picking from a list in the network neighborhood, or similar. Also, if you could run this copy job under a “Run As” so you can use the proper security context.
Third – If the application could generate and email a daily report of all files that moved in every 24 hours (or configurable period) and send it to a list or alias, that would be good. More and more companies want to audit all file movements, so this would help with that.
Fourth – Not having to stop and start the service after changes would be very helpful.
So if you also have a feature request then please don’t hesitate. Let us know. If it’s possible then we’ll try to add it.
