Implement the pause/unpause from tray icon on Linux

I think this was available at some point but was removed (not 100% sure this was the case).

Basically I would like to be able to pause/unpause the syncing from the tray icon in Linux, instead of having to launch the Insync window to do it.

I use Insync to sync my Calibre library and it is vital that the syncing is paused while Calibre is working and books are added / removed / edited, etc to avoid corruption of the database or other inconvenient stuff.


Hi @Tahini,

Thanks for reaching out about this. I’ve forwarded this to our product team :slight_smile:

Hi @miamoran!
I think that this feature is simple to implement and will bring us a better experience of using Insync.

I always need to “Pause syncing”. In that case, it is a bit inconvenient to open the Insync screen just to do it.

Adding the “Pause syncing” in the system tray, would be more productive.
