Mitto has a built in file manager. Any file that exists in Mitto's file manager can be used in jobs (e.g. CSV file in a CSV job).
Adding Files to Mitto
There are many ways to get files into Mitto's file manager:

Add files via Mitto jobs
Many different job types can create or copy files to Mitto's file manager:

Add files via Mitto's FTP
Mitto runs an FTP server with the same hostname as the Mitto UI. The username and password is the same as the Mitto UI.
Reach out to Zuar Support if you would like to enable Mitto's sFTP.
Programmatically add files
Use Mitto's API to programmatically add files to Mitto.
File location on disk
Files in Mitto's file manager are stored on disk at
/var/mitto/data. This file path is needed when referencing files on Mitto in other jobs.
Interacting with Files
After uploading a file, Mitto displays the size of the file as the date of when it was uploaded.
There are two symbols next to the date portion.
The symbol that resembles a dark arrow pointing down indicates the ability to download the file you just uploaded.
The trash can symbol indicates the ability to delete the file from File Manager. Caution: Deleting a file permanently deletes it from your File Manager.
