The file transfer interface can be tailored to meet the needs of your organization and workflow. Choose where to place menu bar and toolbar commands most often used; drag files directly from desktop applications into transfers using drag & drop; view an editable address bar that shows you where files have come from or gone out; keep track of downloads/uploads using an editable address bar; use keyboard shortcuts or sound notifications as alerts of transfers taking place – this SFX interface supports them all!

Use the Session Manager to organize sessions alphabetically or by site, saving logon credentials separately to avoid misuse and unauthorized logins. Recover more quickly when transfers are interrupted with multi-file transfer auto-resuming, filtering with wildcard support for filtering inclusion or exclusion and store frequently used configurations in the Synchronize Database for quick recall.

Automate tasks using the SFXCL command-line client (Windows only), or schedule one to run automatically at a specified time or frequency. It supports filtering wildcards to exclude or include files during syncronization operations and keeps folder structures aligned across both sites in sync – perfect for automating manual processes!
