- Workamajig only needs one sign-on account to connect.
- Thumbnails are not supported when using box.com.if
- The "Archive" function does not work with Amazon S3. This should not be an issue as it would simply create a new folder in the main Bucket folder and name it Archive and place project folders within. So basically moving a folder from the C: drive to the C: drive to archive. It would be better if you backup the "active" folder that is used for project folder storage.
- Go to the AWS Management Console.
- Select Services>>choose Storage: S3.
- Create a Bucket
- Click on this link to find the appropriate region setting: Select Region
The region selected MUST support Signature Verification: Version 2. Some on the list support Version 4 Only, do NOT select these regions!
- Select the appropriate Region in the Create Bucket screen

- Client Folder: select the appropriate Client folder: Default= Client ID

How Do I Get My Current Files On Workamajig Transferred
There are 3 methods we can use to transfer your files from our Workamajig server to you:
- S3 Sync Tool: (Preferred) Provide us with the Bucket Name and keys to connect to S3 browser to your system. For further information, please see https://s3browser.com
- Dropbox: We will provide you with a Dropbox link to retrieve your files. You will then upload the folder into your S3 Bucket/Workamajig folder. The folder structure from Workamajig will be retained, so you need to only drop the Active, Attachments and Reviews folders into the main Workamajig folder. NOTE: the total size of your company zipped folder may make this method unavailable to use.
- Google Drive: Provide us with access to a Google drive login and we will transfer the files to this drive location. You will then upload the folder into the S3 Bucket/Workamajig folder. The folder structure from Workamajig will be retained, so you need to only drop the Active, Attachments and Reviews folders into the main Workamajig folder. NOTE: the total size of your company zipped folder may make this method unavailable to use.
NOTE: During the transfer process there can be no uploads or modifications to any files in any location in Workamajig. However, you can still view the files. Once the transfer of the files is confirmed we will delete them on our servers (we have a 30-day backup that we can restore if necessary).
