Adjust bandwidth settings on a schedule

Explorer | Level 4

I'm setting up a new PC and Dropbox is pulling down a ton of files. I had to throttle the bandwidth for Dropbox down during my workday because it was interfering with my work. At night I removed the bandwidth limits, and tomorrow morning I will have to reapply them if the download isn't done.

It would be nice if you could define a bandwidth schedule: set bandwidth limits and the hours (and days of the week perhaps) when they apply. That way, Dropbox could help itself to unlimited bandwidth at night but throttle itself down during the workday.

Hey there @Richard C.48 - welcome to our Community and thanks for posting your thoughts about this!

We are always looking for our users' input when creating the next version of the Dropbox desktop app (you're always helping us improve our current features and services by providing your feedback and use-cases) and I will make sure your comments are passed along to our development team - thank you for this feature request Richard (i.e. an option to schedule the desktop app's bandwidth settings that is). 

If there's anything else you'd like to add, please let me know!
