Sync the folder alias name or add metadata/description field.

Recommended Posts

Problem: I run multiple applications that create their own "user" folder.  When adding those folders to Resilio Sync, I can't differentiate between them.  I can only see the orginal path on the local machine, but not the remote machine.  I noticed the option to change the name of the simple/advanced folder alias, without actually changing the folder name.  This is great, but the alias does not appear on other devices, so I still see a bunch of folders named 'user'.

Proposition: It would be great if the alias name was transmitted to the other machines since that would likely be easier/safer than exposing the origin folder path.  Another alternative would be a description field so users could add some differentiation between folders of same name.
