Automatically retry after an error?

#1

Nextcloud version (eg, 12.0.2): 2.5.2.2019.03.19
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 17.04): macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): n/a
PHP version (eg, 7.1): n/a

The issue you are facing:

This computer connects to the Nextcloud server over a VPN. Occasionally, the VPN hiccups (and automatically reconnects). But Nextcloud goes to a white X on a red circle with two copies of the error message: “An error occurred while opening a folder Socket operation timed out” To get it synching again, I have to manually “Force sync now.” Not ideal.

Is there a way to configure the client to retry (or automatically force itself to sync) after an interval has passed?
