Event-Driven Automation

Robo-FTP Server's powerful automation engine gives you the ability to easily automate even the most complex workflows, including robust error handling, reporting, and notification.

Server Event Scripts provide a simple way to trigger processes based on events that happen on the server like log on/log off, upload/download, delete, etc. Robo-FTP Server automatically populates a set of variables with information about the event, like the username, path to the file, file size/date, etc.

Need to automatically un-ZIP, decrypt, and rename uploaded files, move them to a new location, and send an email notification? With Robo-FTP Server you can do all that and much more!
