Delay camera uploads

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Is it possible to delay the camera upload function for e.g. one or two days?

 

Why do I really want this feature? When I make photo's I usually make many different sample pictures of the same object (in search for the best picture). Drop-box immediately starts uploading so I get a lot of 'rubbish' pictures in my Dropbox. I like to select the best pictures on my mobile phone first, before the upload is done.

 

Manually activating the camera upload function would also work for me.

There's no way to delay it, but you could easily just enable it as needed. Open the Dropbox app and go to Settings, then disable Camera Uploads. Just re-enable it when you need it.

Very primitive "fix".
Listen to your customers!
User should have a chance to set a delay update timer.
