Delayed photo upload possible?

I’m using the nextcloud app to auto save my pictures from my phone to my Nextcloud. It’s working fine. Maybe too fine…
I often make pictures, I don’t wanna keep. Pictures, that aren’t good, or pictures that I only need for some minutes. But the app uploads all pictures immediately, even if I delete them direct after shooting them.

Is there a way to only upload pictures, that are maybe an hour old or so?

I typically configure mine (Android) to Only upload while charging. It’s an option under the 3-dots menu for each auto upload source.


Didn’t thought of that before. It’s not the solution I wanted, but maybe a compromise I can live with…
Thanks jtr!

My solution to this would be FolderSync app, this allows you to have finegrained sync options like direction, sync schedule, how to handle deletions, exceptions and much more
so i have it sync pictures → folderA with deletions synced and move pictures → folderB for files older than 90days
this causes my phone to hold only fotos of the last 3 months, keeping my storage from runing out, my nextcloud to have all my pictures that my phone has, but if i delete a pic from my phone it will also be deleted in folderA where the content of my phone is mirrored.
