Add File To DropBox




The Add File To DropBox job step type is used to insert a single data file into a specific column/row/date coordinate of a Matrix.


Matrix functionality requires either a subscription to the hosted pasPortal collaboration application or the development of custom interfaces.


The job will fail if the storage limit for the matrix is exceeded or if the maximum number of files for the DropBox has been reached.
