Notifications

BrickFTP gives administrators the ability to have one or more users notified by email any time uploads are made to a specific folder on your FTP site. Upload notifications are sent in batches, with email frequency options of every five minutes, every fifteen minutes, hourly, or daily.

Upload notification emails will include a list of the files uploaded within the configured notification period, limited to the first 100. If you require a more comprehensive or fine-grained notification solution, consider using our Webhook API instead, perhaps in conjunction with our Zapier integration.

To manage notifications for a folder, browse into that folder from the Files tab and select the Behaviors tab. Under Email Notifications you will see a list of existing notifications configured for the folder.

Adding Notifications

To set up a user to be notified of uploads to this folder, first select their username from the dropdown. Next, select the desired notification interval. Finally, click Add Notification. This user will begin receiving email notifications of uploads to this folder, as well as its subfolders, at the interval you specified.

Deleting Notifications

To Delete a notification, simply hover your mouse over the notification and and click the ‘x’ that appears in the Actions column. This user will no longer receive notifications of file uploads to this folder.
