ante created the topic: Automatic upload to ext FTP

Dear support

I have an unusual challenge. Did search the CB forum and I would have been surprised if I actually found something similar.

In short. I create CB records using BF. In CB I have a view where I show only two of my BF elements (out of 20+). Every night I need a CSV file containing these two elements for all records submitted during the last X days to be uploaded to an EXTERNAL FTP server automagically.

I realize this probably needs to be done in several steps such as creating CSV template, filling csv file with values every night, upload to FTP.

Is the above doable? I believe a CRON job is a part of the solution. Also I am thinking changing the XLS template and somehow have it populated with records from the last X days. But then I guess (definitely only guessing) the populated CSV file needs to be stored somewhere on the Joomla installation server so FTP function can grab it and upload it to External FTP. I obviously need help with the entire flow, although the CSV Template creation part is probably well documented in the forum already.

Any ideas?

Best Regards,
Ante
