Folder names do not update when updated on the cloud

    Hello. Thanks for the report. Currently CloudPlayer does not update the Folder View when the folder structure is updated. This is due to a previous limitation of the cloud service APIs. But there may have been recent updates which may allow updating so the QA/Dev team is investigating. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

    Thank you for the comment doubleTwist!

    I have just confirmed that within the Google Drive API it is possible. A list of all changes within a drive can be obtained using the list method within the Changes resource. The changes do not specify what the change was, but file attributes can then subsquently be requested. The parent (folder) is shown.

    As for scanning for renames (ignoring file moves), it could be even easier. Folders can be explicitly looked up by their ID, and there could be a simple button that was like "update folder names".

    Hello Evan, thanks for the follow up. I'll pass along your comments to the product manager and QA/Dev team so they can look into this further.
