05. Managing Connections

When you make changes to online accounts, you may need to make changes to your connections in FileThis Fetch as well. For example, if you change your login or password information for an account, you need to edit the connection. Or, if you close an account, you can delete a connection after collecting your final documents from it.  

Editing Connections

You can edit the account name, login, and password for your connections. In addition, you can see when FileThis Fetch last connected to that account, find out how many total documents have been fetched, and ask FileThis Fetch to fetch all documents again.

To enter edit mode and edit connections, click the Edit button above the My Connections list.

While in Edit mode, you can edit My Connections as follows:

  • Edit Nickname: Click on an account name to change it.
  • Edit User ID and Password: Click an account’s individual Edit button. The Edit Connection dialog box lets you change information associated with the account, such as the name, login, and password. (Keep in mind that the User ID and Password must match the information saved with that actual account.)
  • Fetch All Documents: If you think you accidentally deleted an account’s documents, you can have FileThis Fetch fetch the documents again. To do that, check Fetch All Documents. (FileThis Fetch will only fetch documents the next time it connects to the account, not every time.)

Deleting Connections

If you close an account or no longer want to have FileThis Fetch fetch its documents, you can delete the connection. To do this, click the Edit button above the My Connections list. Then, click the red minus sign next to the account name. Click OK when the alert displays.

Customizing Connection Notifications

By default, FileThis Fetch sends you an email every time it fetches a document from one of your accounts. In addition, if FileThis Fetch has trouble fetching a document, you receive a notification. If you’d rather not receive these notifications, click the Settings tab at the top of the FileThis Fetch main window. Then, click Preferences and uncheck:

  • Email Me When New Documents Are Fetched
  • Email Me When There Is A Problem
