Receive upload and download notifications

File transfer notifications are not enabled by default. Use the next procedure to see how these work.

To receive email notifications when files are transferred

  1. Log on to Gateway Administrator using the admin account.
  2. On the Transfer Sites page, select the Test Files site you created earlier and click Edit.
  3. Scroll down to the user list. On the admin user row, under Notifications, click the upload notification icon to change it from gray uploadPermissionDisabled.png (disabled) to green uploadPermission.png (enabled). Enable download notification downloadPermission.png in the same way.
  4. Click Save.

To view the email notifications

  1. Log on to the Transfer Client using the test account for Joe and transfer files both to and from the Test Files site.
  2. Open the email account you set for the admin user. You should see messages with the subject "FileXpress Upload Success Notification" and "FileXpress Download Success Notification."


Note: If you have followed through all the examples in this guide, the administrator's email will also include a delivery failure notification. When an account is added to a transfer site, FileXpress sends the added user a Transfer Site Access email. When you use a non-existent email address like joe@test, this attempt fails and the administrator receives notification of this failure from the email server.
