#3607 new Enhancement

Download to specific dir depending on watch dir.

It would be very good if you could download to diffrent dirs depending on from with watch the torrent was fetched from. For instance.

Watch.1 "/home/cylon/linux_distros" Downloads to /home/cylon/downloads/distros

Watch.2 /home/cylon/freeware Downloads to /home/cylon/downloads/freeware

  • Cc horrex@… added
  • Keywords watch multiple folders added

TV-Shows go in one folder, Linux-distros in another, movies from tracker A in folderA, movies from tracker B in folderB, and so on. This would greatly help to organize torrents and files and help getting a better overview.

Especially nice is this feature with browsers set to autodownload torrents in a specific folder depending on the URL.

Would be a great feature to have. A watch on my Dropbox folder as well as my regular DL folder.

Also would like to add to this request. There are a number of hits on google for "Transmission Multiple Watch Folders" so it seems like a fairly desired feature.

This is the feature I personally miss VERY much in all the torrent clients I know. It allows you to automatically structure downloaded content by just saving torrent files in corresponding watch subdirectory. Guy, this is so handy!

Please, take your time to do this feature. I'm eagerly looking forward to having this one. Thank you.

rtorrent supports this. checks multiple watchdirs, picks up all torrents and moves to separate destination dirs when complete.

example configuration for 2 watchdirs:

It would be great if this feature is added to transmissions.

How come this is on low priority? Internet is full of forum topics requesting this feature.

Ticket #4231 even contained patch.

Is this going to hang on low priority for a long time? I love transmission, I've been using it for years now. But without this feature my current sickbeard/couchpotato install doesn't work.
