Import file from file system

A Score Level 3

Hi all,

We want to import an excel/csv file from the file system in the same machine in which Appian runs. Do we need a plugin for that? We can use SFTP services or any other plugin but I wanted to know if Appian offers somethign out of the box. When I look at the excel tools that we have in place they expect that the file is already in the Appian internal DMS.

what I have seen so far is that we can use collab filesystem utilities or SFTP utilities. It seems that Appian does not offer something out of the box yet.

I am tempted to use the collab filesystem utilities because as far as I know the SFTP utilities require a SFTP client installed in the machine. Any recommendation?
