Users Media catalog Update/Upload settings

Update media-catalog via Internet

With MyBusinessCatalog, you can upload updates for previously created media catalog for Windows .
The essence of the system is as follows: you, as an administrator, upload updates via the FTP protocol to your website in a public folder, and the client catalog automatically downloads updates via the HTTP protocol.
Thus, a folder on your site acts as a cloud for updates.

The entire user interface is reduced to a single update status icon, by clicking on which you can get current information on the process. The update itself runs without user interaction, but can be turned off if desired.
