does anyone have a system in place to addresses multiple file uploads and capture through domo

I have requirements to setup an FTP daily, it will take an intial file dump and every 5 minutes following files will be uploaded with changes. Keep in mind Box is our current connector with Domo and our FTP host. For those of you who know, there is a delay between files upload to Box and when Domo can recognize files that have been uploaded to Box. We are currently all cloud base and do not have a dedicated local machine to implement workbench. does anyone have any ideas?

    Our solution was to install workbench on a virtual machine/server remote desktop.  Was more about role permissions on local machines and needing to be able to have access to windows task scheduler than anything else.

    If the files are being dumped in an FTP folder, you could leverage some of our beta connectors that can connect to FTP. I believe the CSV-SFTP connector is currently available for the public; we also have an Excel-SFTP and another CSV-SFTP that has more advanced configuration settings. Feel free to reach out to your implementation consultant or Domo Support for help in setting up the non-public-facing connectors if the public CSV-SFTP doesn't work for you.

    @CoreVest, did any of the above replies help you out? 

  • I have also discussed with out consultants on this matter, they have informed me that using workbench does not allow me to pull data from our Box account rather i can only pull data from a local source. Thank you for your answer

  • Thank you i will reach out to see if these will be viable solutions
