New File in Directory

Can this application be used to check if a new file has been added to an ftp directory? If so, is it able to determine if a file has been fully uploaded or is still in the process? I have a client that allows clients to upload files. With bigger files, their customers are using an FTP client. I would like for my client to receive an email notification only after a file has been completely uploaded.

Yes, Simon has a FTP Directory Listing service, which does what it sounds like. You can then use the Smart Change Detection feature to get notified when a change occurs.

I believe that the file will only be listed in the directory when it is completely uploaded, though I'm not sure about that.
