keyboard shortcuts for smart sync

New member | Level 2

One of the things that would really be useful to me was if I could create 2 keyboard shortcuts for toggling Smart Sync on my Mac. Right now, to bring files locally or move them online only, you have to select the files, right click, and then go to Smart Sync > Local / Online Only. This is not a hard thing to do clearly, but I find myself frequently toggling this, and it would be so much easier if I could just select a group of files and enter a shortcut to bring those files locally or put them online only.

I've followed instructions online to create custom shortcuts before, but I don't know how to do it for something like this, if it is even possible. Thank you in advance!

This gets a thubs up from me, I spend a look of time right clicking finding the sub menu and choosing Online Only or Local. I'd love a key command! Wonder if there's a Keyboard Maestro solution...?

We just need an easier way to make this happen. Buttons in the finder toolbar, keyboard shortcuts, even just toggling the icon in the finder row. Right clicking and going to a sub-menu is a pain!

This is a very good idea and would be so much easier than right click etc.

definitely a no.1 wishlist feature in our office.
Rightclick context menus on workstations can get a little too bloated (many many tools) and therefore pretty slow to open on older machines. A simple keypress would solve this perfectly!

I love Smart Sync, it is fanstaic. Please do provide shortcut to allow us to switch between "Online Only" and "Local".

I NEED THIS!!! This is the hands down the feature I need and want the most. Love dropbox, would love it even more! I think it would save me hours every month.
