emdash™ Upload database backup to Openlink

emdash™ has the capability to upload encrypted Endur and Findur database backups to the Openlink FTP site.  There are three steps required to enable this functionality.

Import emdash™ licence file

This feature is enabled in your emdash™ licence.  If the menu option "FTP Backup File" does not appear under Admin Tolls in the emdash™ side menu please contact CwJ Consulting to obtain an updated emdash™ licence file.

Once the required licence has been obtained import it using the emdash™ web application via the emDash Licence link (see above)

Once imported you should see the Feature "Ftp Backup File To Openlink" in the list of features.
