The SFTP Transport destination allows you to send your form data over a secure connection following Secure File Transfer Protocol. Below are the steps to follow if you want to set up this destination for one of your forms.

Once you’ve saved your form and exited the designer, you will arrive back at the "Forms" page. On this page, click the link in the destinations column of the form you would like to add the destination to.

Note: If there are no destinations added to your account, this button will read "0".

You'll then be brought to the Destinations page, where you can click "New Destination".

A new page will load, and on it you will see different destinations to send your data. Next, select "SFTP Transport". After selecting the destination, you're given the option to choose the format. In this example, I chose XML.

You will also see an option to send your images to a different destination. Check the box if you would like to do this, and select from the destinations provided.

If you like, you can add a Description in your "Destination Options" box, but this is optional.

Additional options are available for the XML file. You can name the file that is generated upon submission or download a sample of the type of XML file you'll receive.

Then, input your server's host name, username, and password. You also have the option to create a folder path (which can be customized using the placeholders provided).

When you're done, click "Create Destination".

This concludes our overview of adding the SFTP destination. If you have any questions or comments feel free to send us a message at or leave us a comment below.
