This idea was proposed as far back as 2015 but never implemented. Dropbox aggressivey tries to sync a file as soon as it changes. But many of our technical apps require a long access during saving. For example, Altium Designer saves a file in multiple steps. As a result, as soon as it changes the file, dropbox takes over and starts synching. But when Altium tries to finish the save and rewrite the file, it fails and issues an error.
This happens with many technical apps that use weird saving methods and is hurting our buisness. I bet others have similar problems and avoid it but not saving directly into dropbox folders.
It would be nice if dropbox has a time delay mechanism. For example 1s or even more. That can reduce the burden on Dropbox servers too as they are synching many versions of the file that are useless. If the user could select say a 5 minute delay (in my case), at least 50 versions of the file/day would have been reduced on your servers.
