How to Use Add Ons - Beta

Add Ons are connections to other products that you can use.  Add Ons are categorized by type; for instance Storage Add Ons like Dropbox.  To use an Add On click on it's icon and complete the steps needed to link it to your account.  Add Ons are accessible by Admin users in the Account menu.

Storage

  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive

Dropbox and Google Drive are storage Add Ons.  They will let you link your Pruvan account to your cloud storage accounts.  Any items (photos, surveys, etc) that are published to the Downloader will also be relayed to your cloud storage Add On as long as the Add On is active.  Each account is allowed up to 3 paths per storage account and up to 2 different storage accounts per storage Add On.  This will allow you to have multiple copies of each item in your storage account if you wish.  Items will be saved in a "Pruvan" base folder and then in a series of sub-folders as determined by your path.  The folder path for storage Add Ons works the same way as it does for the Downloader.  Any failures will be automatically retried.  If there are any failures that require action on your part an alert will be sent to your Pruvan account.  Any failures that cause the Add On connection to fail permanently will temporarily disable your Add On until you fix the issue.  After the issue has been fixed, open the Add On and click the 'Save' button to re-enable it.
