Smart Sync Online Only For Team

Smart Sync Online Only For Team

Please make this feature into two buttons. I don't want Dropbox making files I don't use often online only and I don't want files uploaded by my team mates to automatically download to my computer.

Hello @Curtis_Perrin, thanks for reaching out to us and for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. 

Is there any other feature regarding Smart Sync you'd like to see being implemented differently in the future by any chance?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

I think in general there could be further clarification around how Smart Sync works with Teams/Businesses as the setting seems to mainly apply to how it operates for an individual.

 

Further if I understand the functionality correctly the notion is that if a folder is set to sync then any and all future files/folders added to the top level folder will sync. If there was an option for sync one time vs sync in perpetuity. Like download everything currently in this folder but don't download any future files added online, on other devices or by other users. Unless this is how the smart sync setting mentioned above works. It's unclear.

In the meantime, I hope you have a lovely day ahead of you!
