Uploading to container in the background?

Our company handle artwork for printing purposes. That means we can have individual files of say 50-100Mb. In old times this has been handled outside of FM, but off course I want to have all artwork in FM, using external storage for containers, thereby getting many upsides: preview in the FM-app, safe backuped storage on the server, easy to purge all files connected to a project etc.

 

My problem is that in order to get compliance from the team, I need to do something about the uploading to containers. If they upload by ftp straight to a printing house, dropbox or to the file server, they can still keep working in FM. When they upload to a FM container, FM will freeze while uploading.

 

-> What I would like to do is uploading to container in the background, so they can keep working.

 

I'm thinking I could have them put the file elsewhere and have the server checking, but that adds complexity. Is there a way to have the interface working as usual and trigger a script that makes it happen in the background without further file handling from the user?
