Hi, i need a little bit special feature but i couldn´t find anything. The backround is to send Files (PDFs Bills, Receipts etc.) to our external accounting supplier. So far no problem works very well with the Sync App on both sides.
But, we want to make sure, that if they have booked a bill on their side, they must move it into a subfolder “done”, it shouldn´t be synced/copied from us to them then again.
How can i make sync/copy Files from A to B only once?
This looks very similar to what I use in my daily work routine. Completed work is moved to a “Erledigt(Done)” folder.
As soon as your accountant moves the corresponding file, it should also be synchronized back to you, so also on the server and in your sync client it is then out of the “Buchhaltung(Accounting)” folder and in the “Done” folder. So where should the file then be transferred “again”?
The thing is, they are not trustworthy users :-). They delete files and make chaos. This is why i only copy to them and not sync back. And to make sure, they really booked everything and see new incoming bills, they have to move it in the folder “Erledigt”.
A PDF File is synced from my Server A to their Server B. So far so good.
Now when Accounting User on their Side B has finished his job with the File, he moves this PDF File on his side B to a folder called “Done - erledigt”.
But a few seconds later, it apears again on the place where it was originally copied to. And the other file is in “Done - erledigt.”
Doesn´t the nextlcoud client recognize when a file is moved and once copied? It is not configured to sync, only to copy from A to B.
Background is, i must have to make sure that the accountat has booked every single file and make it easier for them to see new bills in the folder that has to be booked.
So nextcloud must only copy once or a file has changed on my side.
