Xinet® WebNative® Suite Uploader offers a way for off-site staff and contractors to deliver files to your WebNative Suite environment without granting direct access to your server.

Feature Overview

While your customers, contractors and other off-site personnel may not require daily access to your WebNative Suite server, having the ability to upload deliverables exactly where you want them can be very convenient for them—and for you. As a stand-alone desktop application, the Xinet Uploader provides an efficient drag-and-drop mechanism for delivering files and folders to a WebNative Suite server within predetermined parameters, and notifying you at the same time.


Create Uploaders with Uploader Manager

Uploader ManagerA standard component of your WebNative Suite installation, Uploader Manager provides a simple method for creating and managing individual Uploader applications. The Xinet Configuration Wizard guides you through the process of creating as many Uploader applications as you need. Once created, they can be distributed via email to one or many users, or stored on the WebNative Suite server for instant download by approved users.


Customize Uploader for Every User

UploaderEvery Uploader application is customized to an individual user’s requirements. By selecting from different configuration options within the application, you specify exactly how the application will perform by establishing specific criteria.

Once you have entered your criteria, you can specify whether the application is for a Mac or Windows user, or both of these. As a way to provide a distinct look and feel for individual customers, you can customize the Uploader icon.


Let Users Create and Re-Create Uploaders

Uploader configurations can be associated with volumes, so users can create Uploader applications when they need them. The Uploader is automatically loaded with the user’s authentication information, allowing easier administration when there are large numbers of users involved or the authentication is controlled by a directory server (such as AD or OD). This gives the flexibility and reliability of the Uploader application with the ease of use of a web-based Uploader.


Duplicate and Distribute Freely

Each Uploader application has its own unique configuration specific to the WebNative Suite login, and the number of Uploaders you can distribute is unlimited. You can even duplicate an existing Uploader for multiple users with identical requirements.


Require Metadata for Every File

Many contractors are asked to provide specific metadata when delivering files for a project, such as copyright information, byline or comments about an asset.

The Uploader provides a simple way to include metadata with every file. Optionally, you can configure a user’s permissions to require that metadata be entered for any file delivered to the WebNative Suite server. When a user attempts to upload a file that does not contain the required metadata, the Uploader application displays a window asking that metadata be provided.

Metadata Required to Upload: Fields displayed in red are required before this user can upload files. The Uploader will deliver these files only when the required metadata is included.


Because metadata requirements can change within your organization, Uploader applications can be configured to automatically reflect these changes so off-site Uploader users are sure to stay current with their unique metadata requirements.


Automate Email Notification

Every time a document is delivered from an outside source via the Uploader, an automatic email can be sent to a designated recipient as notification of the delivery. The details of the email are established at the time the Uploader is created, such as:

  • Which information is included in the email—only information about the file, all metadata associated with the file, or only the required metadata
  • Who will receive email notification each time a file is received on the server
  • Whether or not the user may send the report to additional email recipients
  • Three standard templates for email reports are provided with the Uploader Manager, and you may also create your own templates for further customization.

    Automatic Email Notification: The information provided in automatic email reports is determined by the administrator at the time the Uploader is created. These reports are customizable.


    Offer Simple, Drag-and-Drop File Delivery

    For off-site staff, the Uploader application offers a simple and efficient means of delivering files directly to a WebNative Suite server by simply dragging and dropping them to a preconfigured desktop icon. Automatic email notification alerts those who need to be updated with the current status of deliverables.
