Automated FTP Upload

The Automated FTP Upload option allows you to receive periodic "data dumps" or reports that QuestionPro generates for any of your surveys to be uploaded to an FTP Server of your choice. The FTP Upload works in conjunction with the Report/Data Scheduler.

What is FTP Host and FTP Location?

The FTP host is the domain or subdomain address of the FTP server.

Ex: questionpro.com

The Host loaction i.e. “Server Path” specifies the directory/folder on your server that will hold the files you upload. The “Web URL” is the web address you use to access the folder you specified in the FTP path.

Ex: https://www.questionpro.com/folder/default/ftp_folder

Please Note:
  • FTP Server should support Passive FTP Mode
  • Firewall:
    • Open Port 21
    • Open Ports 1024-65534
To set up FTP Reports Go to: Login » Surveys » Manage Data » Scheduling Click on the New Auto-Scheduled Report button.

Does the system support Secure FTP (SFTP or SCP)?

Yes.

How can I "test" my FTP upload process?

After creating the scheduler, you can click on the "Run Now" icon. The system will run the scheduler and attempt to FTP transfer the file immediately. You should see logs on FTP upload transcripts.

Can I receive an email ALSO along with the FTP Upload?

Yes. By default, the system will always email you the generated file. This is done for auditing purposes and cannot be disabled.

Where can I see all my FTP Reports Schedule?

Go To: Login » Surveys » Integration » FTP
