Current "Problem"

 

When working with folder automations, I don't know how long they are going to take. When I have 3rd party automations running on my file system for my local machine in the integrated Dropbox folder, it can move files too quickly before certain automations have finished in some folders. I can slow my 3rd party automations down, but I don't know how slow I need to make them, since I can't see queued or current automation jobs (folder automations) from Dropbox in either the web or Desktop version. I am on a MacOS Apple Silicon machine, for context.

 

Proposed "Solution"

 

Add a progress bar that displays percentage progress and ETA for completion for automated folder operations.

Hi @wardenclyffe, welcome to our Community! 

 

That sounds like a good feature request actually. 😊

 

I'd personally suggest that you post it on our "Share an idea" section of the community if you have some time.

 

Just make sure to keep in mind these tips before you do.

 

Thanks a bunch!
