Transmit 3.2 Updates with Actions

Panic has released version 3.2 of Transmit, their OS X FTP client. Transmit 3.2 includes three Automator actions: Upload Files, Download Files and Synchronize Files. A single-user license is $29.95, or is free for upgrading Transmit 3 users. For Automator users looking to incorporate FTP into their workflows this is a must-have.



  1. I’m having some trouble using this action. Does anyone have any hints? So far I’ve tried the following: (1) Ask for finder items (2) upload files
    When run I get the message “Workflow Execution Failed”

  2. It would help if you could post what the log says (cmnd-opt-L), but that’s a very basic workflow, I would guess you have something wrong configured in the Transmit action.

  3. I tried the action using a different computer and it works fine. I will test it on the computer that gave me the trouble and will post the log.

  4. Mostly good news — today the workflow is uploading files without any problems for most files.

    I did get a Workflow execution failed message for a file name 5 5/8″ x 8 1/4″. The log says: An error Couldn’t upload the file:

  6. I too have tried to run the supplied automator script and got the same result… Worflow Execution Failed. I tried it by typing in the server as well as saving a favorite. Neither worked, but the favorite does load both folders from within transmit.

  7. I had the “Workflow Execution Failed” problem as well. The fix that worked for me was to set the server time offset manually to anything NOT “0 hours” first and then check the “Determine server time offset automatically” checkbox.

    Hope this helps someone!

  8. My “Workflow Execution Failed” error was due to an updated Automator action in Transmit 3.6.1. Download the new Transmit, and open the package contents. Drag the new Automator actions from the application package contents, and drop them in /System/Library/Automator. Then re-create your Automator workflow by deleting, then re-inserting, the new Transmit action.
