Hi all,

My problem, step by step:
  1. Opportunity is changed to WON

  2. A PDF file is created with detailed information on the account and opportunity

  3. This PDF is then archived in Sugar and/or downloaded to the client's computer

  4. THE PROBLEM: this file needs to be in a special folder within client's network, so another department can pick it up and work on it. Client proposed to open a FTP user/pass so we can connect to his server and send the file from Sugar to them

  5. CONSIDERING it's Sugar 7.2.1 Enterprise on-demand

  6. QUESTIONS:
    a) Is it possible? - I imagine I could open a connection using PHP and send the file, but I don't know if module loader will complain about that;

    b) Being possible, any tips on HOW can I achieve this? Logic hooks? A customization?
Thanks a lot, best,

Fernando
