Exactly allows users to pack local data into BagIt bags and to transfer them to remote locations via FTP or SFTP protocol. While creating the bags, the users can choose to add user-info metadata, which is added to the bag-info file. The UI offers reserved fields, such as source-organization, organization-address, etc., per default, but also supports non-bagit fields to be added. Metadata profiles, (S)FTP parameters, email preferences, and other settings can be stored in preset settings files for usage in client installations.

During bag creation, the user has the option to choose whether the bag should be zipped or not.

The tool integrates with desktop-based file sharing workflows such as Dropbox or Google Transfer and is designed to assist data producers in easy data transfer to archiving institutions.
