Starting this thread from thoughts by @EthanH so that others can engage, too…
Can odrive please give the ability to add per-user file exclusion masks? Better still would be the option to specify exclusions on a per-share basis as well as globally.
Do others want this capability as well?
What are your specific needs?
- Is a simple exclusion list based on file extensions good enough (probably best bang for the buck and least complexity to understand/use)? Or do you need the ability to filter on file/folder name filters/regex?
- Do you need exceptions to the exclusion list? (e.g. whitelist on top of the blacklist)
- Is this something you are looking for on an individual basis, or are you trying to set this up for a group of people (so that having each user custom-configure their exclusion list is inconvenient)? There are different ways that configuration could be done: on an individual basis, at a share-basis (e.g. as part of Spaces settings), and on a group/organization level (configured for all users in an organization).
- Do you have any other considerations that we should be aware of? Or do you want to exclude files based on something else (e.g. file size, custom file metadata, etc.) other than file name or type?
