    Scott,


    Thanks for the inquiry. Unfortunately due to revenue recognition guidelines we cannot publish forward looking delivery targets in public forums. Please feel free to reach out to your sales rep and we can look to schedule a roadmap session to discuss this and other plans we have if you'd like however.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we believe it would be a valuable addition to File Agent. There are still some technical design challenges to explore, but I will accept this request. It will be added to our enhancement backlog and we'll look to add it to the roadmap moving forward.

    Sincerely,

    We are looking forward to this feature available on File Agent.

    Sterling FileAgent needs to evolve at the same speed as Connect. Here in Brazil more than 90% of Connect: Direct users also use the File Agent to automate the transmission processes.
