  1. Generate SFTP credentials in your Locally account here.
  2. Set Up Your Server in Matrixify
    • Open the Matrixify app and navigate to Settings.
    • In the Servers section, create a new server to store your user credentials. You can use either password or private key authentication.

    • Once your server is set up, go to the Matrixify app Home page.
    • In the Export section, create a new export.
    • Choose your desired export format and data (refer to the Matrixify "How it Works" page for details).
    • Set file name to: "Locally_Inventory" and we can only accept .csv, .xls, .xlsx, .txt file types.
  4. Configure Export Options for SFTP Upload
    • Define how your export will run in the export options.
    • Use the Repeat every and Schedule on options to set the initial export time and repetition frequency.
      • Set as often as the file should be synced to Locally, for example, Repeat every 1 hour
    • In the Upload to dropdown, select the previously created server.
    • Enter the folder path for the app to upload the data in the Path field.
  5. Alternatively, Uploading via Full URL:
    • If your server isn't set up in Matrixify, choose Full URL and enter the complete SFTP URL.
    • The URL format should include user credentials and the file path: sftp://username:password@ftp.locally.com:2022
  6. Start Your Export!
    • Once everything is configured, click the Export button in the app to initiate the process.
    • Upon completion, the file will be uploaded to your specified SFTP server folder.
    • The Matrixify app's All Jobs page displays all your past, running, and scheduled import/export jobs.
