the indexing of the files for the search is very cumbersome at the moment. What I would propose is that you put in a CRON which can be hit and it automatically starts indexing the latest uploaded files from the last time the cron has been hit.
That is much much easier than if you have to manually start it from the backend.
Here is the usecase I want: People are uploading daily documents to Dropfiles. Every night, at 12 pm when the server is at its lowest, it indexes the new files that were uploaded during the previous day.
Would be cool to have that feature!
