Allow syncing with 2 dropbox directories - work and home


I would love the ability to keep my work files separate from my home tasks/todos. I woudl prefer if my home files never touched my work laptop. 

Is there any way to do this? 

Ideally we would have one directory for work files and one dir for home files. 

I would pay $20 for this feature alone as it means I can finally go back to using this app for all todos.

This is something I've been promising for a *long time* and do hope to get around to in the first few of months of 2020. I've got to bite the bullet and rewrite quite a bit of code which refers to files - I boxed myself in a little with the initial implementation and have continued to. However it will be well worth it.

I would really appreciate it.

Maybe not 2, but what about n folders?

When I get around to implementing this there wouldn't be any hard limits of the number of folders.

I also wish this feature to implemented. I have work & home directories with few sub folders each.

Would be happy to beta-test. I've used org mode with multiple folders for many years.
The other option is to support symbolic links. That is, of an 'org-links' folder in dropbox that has symbolic links to .org files in multiple other folders. This may be less robust, though, as dropbox has changed how they handle symbolic links in the past. 


Any news on this. It would be very useful to add more than one folder to sync, allow us to select independently if we want to include subfolders for each folder we added to sync.
