Description

Hello,

For peoples that heavily often do same transfers/sync between folders, it could be useful if those kind of jobs could be saved. Maybe a good idea would be to place those jobs as sub bookmarks in the corresponding connection bookmark. Sub bookmarks would be accessed by clicking on a new button that could be placed on the right side of the connection bookmarks.

A sub bookmark item would be composed by :

  • the job type (upload / download / sync)
  • job options, depending of the job type : resume/overwrite/rename/skip/compare for upload and download ; download/upload/mirror for sync
  • the source folder
  • the destination folder

This will simplify a lot repetitive tasks and will be a gain of time. Any comments are welcome.

Thanks !

Cédric

  • Summary changed from Tranferts/sync jobs bookmarks to Transfer bookmarks

You can always restart a transfer by choosing Reload in the Transfers window. It will prompt again for the action if a file already exists, though.

Replying to dkocher:

Yes I totally agree, and its really helpful. My thoughts are cases where CyberDuck is mainly used for sync operations / backup purposes, running tasks from the history is not the cleanest way, plus the history list only show the folder name and could lead to mistakes.

A future vision would be, when jobs will be implemented, to allow a kind of jobs scheduling like "run this sync jobs every 1 hour", I agree that such features tends more to the backup solution than a transfer client, but a the end what's the difference ? both cases need to transfers files between differents places.

Cheers

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

Periodic background tasks is not something we are eager to implement. But the display of transfer items also relates to #6294.

Hello David,

Too bad for the periodic background tasks ;-) Indeed, request #6294 seems great and looks like a bit what I am looking for.

Cheers !
