How can we improve Alma?

Add the ability to upload EDI files from FTP sites manually

Currently, Alma will only allow you to manually upload an EDI invoice file from a local folder. If you map an FTP site shortcut to your desktop and attempt to manually upload the EDI invoice file from that location, it will say there is an error. I have confimed that Alma does not currently support manual EDI invoice file uploading from ftp sites, only when you configure it to run automatically.

Import profiles support both processes, so it seems like this area of Alma should support both manual and automatic uploads from FTP sites as well.

    I would swear that this functionality used to exist, but it stopped working a few months ago. I, too, confirmed with Ex Libris that Alma does not currently support manual EDI invoice file uploading from FTP sites. But was it supported in the past?
