    • an Automation WITHOUT moving file to 'processed' folder

      an Automation WITHOUT moving file to 'processed' folder..

      the reason is:

      if I am UPDATING a dropbox file (not just uploading, but updating an existing file with a new version) I need the file to always be in the same folder on dropbox. If I have an 'Automation' on that file it gets moved to a 'processed' folder, so I have to manually move it back each time to get updated

                                  • Send a digest email instead of one email per file.

                                    When uploading many files, instead of spamming the recipient, send a single email after a predefined interval. Then the recipient will get one email with info on all the files uploaded in the past hour, day, etc.

                                    • image resizing using percentage

                                      now you can only resize a picture to a specific width and height in pixels. It would be easy to resize a whole map to the same percentage. so it works for portrait as well as landscape.
