Conversely, they can be configured to automatically pull the content from the sender or server. With file transfers processing automatically in the background, you can boost your productivity by spending less time on routine tasks.


Collaborate more easily over different time zones with Watch Folders. Users can place files in the Watch Folder and they will automatically download on the recipient’s end. Now your teams working in multiple time zones can do their work on their own time, eliminating the need to initiate a download.
