Increase number of email addresses you can share Workspace with at one time


  • EFT, version 7.1 and later (with Workspaces)


In the WTC help topic Sharing Folders, it says I can only share a Workspace with 10 email addresses at a time. (Changed to 20 in v7.4.13 and later) Is there a way to remove that limitation?


Yes. The EFT administrator can edit the client-side JavaScript, as described below.

To change the number of email address that you can add at one time

  1. Go the folder <EFTINSTALLPATH>\web\public\EFTClient\jument\scripts.
  2. In a text editor, open <number>.main.js.
  3. Search for the following text:
  4. {var b="";return a.length>10&&(b=$.t("errorMoreThanTenEmails")),b}

  5. Replace 10 with a larger number, such as 100.
  6. Save the file.
  7. Clear the browser cache to see the changes.

You might also want to change the "More than Ten Emails" message, located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise\web\public\EFTClient\jument\i18n\. The file is main_en.json (or main_de.json, main_nl.json, or other language).

To edit the error message

  1. In a text editor, open main_en.json.
  2. Search for the following text:
  3. "errorMoreThanTenEmails": "A maximum of 10 participants can be added to this Workspace at a time. Please shorten your email list and try again."

  4. Edit the message to change the "maximum of 10" to the number you changed it to. Be sure that you do not change "errorMoreThanTenEmails": just the text that follows, within the quotation marks.
  5. Save the file.

Note that is good practice to make a copy of each of the files that you want to edit before you edit them, in case you want to revert your changes.
