Add Sync button to top menu bar

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm loving Enpass, does everything I want it to do, thanks everyone :) 

My only issue is that sometimes it takes a long time to auto- sync.  I'm using Folder Sync between multiple devices, and the vault files are updating immediately when an item is added or edited, but it takes a long time (up to 10 minutes) for Enpass on another device to auto-refresh, even when it's left open and on top of other apps. (I'm using version 6.4.2). It's nothing to do with my network, it's definitely Enpass not auto-refreshing for some reason.

So, to be safe, I manually sync Enpass when I move to a different device to make sure it is current. It would help if you could add a Sync button to the top menu, which would act as a visual reminder and also be a bit quicker than opening the vault settings window.

Many thanks for your great work.

Hi @penarcher,

We're happy to read your feedback and are glad to know that it solves your purpose! 

A quick-sync button will definitely be a cool add-on in the app. I'm taking this forward for discussion. Who knows, we might implement this sooner or later! Thanks for your suggestion.

Thanks for your quick reply Pratyush, and for considering my request. 

I have been experimenting with the Auto-Lock settings. I had it set to auto-lock when the system is inactive for 10 mins so that I could leave Enpass open while working on other programs, and move back and forth between programs and devices without it locking. But I think that affected the auto-sync, hence the problem of not syncing for 10 mins. 

I've now changed it to auto-lock when Enpass is idle for 1 minute, and changed to a PIN for unlocking. So now when I move to another device (eg desktop to laptop) Enpass is locked and I can quickly unlock with my PIN. Then the first thing it does is auto-sync - this takes approx 4-5 secs.

It's not a perfect solution for me, but it does reduce the risk of overwriting edits in the meantime. I look forward to your quick-sync button as I think this will be the perfect solution to be sure my files are in sync when I change devices and give me peace of mind :)

thank you

Hi @penarcher,

Thanks for getting back!

The sync probably seems laggy because it involves quite a few operations. Essentially, every time Enpass communicates with the cloud sync servers, it has to decrypt the file present on the server, compare time-frames, fetch the changes from the cloud file and modify the local vault file etc.

Additionally, Enpass saves an auto back-up file whenever it modifies the local vault database on syncing with cloud - just in case something goes wrong!
We'll still work to make sync seamless and fast with regular version updates.
