What is Courier?
Korbyt’s Courier feature allows you to setup a Rule that syncs with a folder in a cloud hosting service. For an On-Premise server, you can set it to sync with a network folder. This means that once you setup your Rule, it adds and removes content from your Media Library without ever having to log in to Korbyt!
This feature is the perfect way to allow non-technical users a simple way to get content onto your screens.
What Cloud Services are Supported?
As of Korbyt 1.4.7, the following services are supported:
- Google Drive
- Microsoft OneDrive
If you have an On-Premise server, you cannot sync with cloud services, only network folders.
