    Integration with Dropbox

    Asked by ParaisoAnimal on March 23, 2012 at 08:59 AM

    Hi,

    I'm the owner of a business in Brazil, we are currently using SurveyMonkey to collect customer information and we are considering switching to JotForm + Dropbox, so we can have our customer info more easily accessible via Dropbox. We are currently testing JotForm integration with Dropbox:

    1. Once a form is filled, we receive a PDF file on Dropbox, however these files are always blank PDF files (see attachment). We created several test forms and it happens every time.

    2. Is it possible to have a spreadsheet or CSV file uploaded to Dropbox (instead of a PDF) every time the form is filled? Eg: everytime a customer fills a form, we receive the whole database (a spreadsheet os CSV with the content of all filled forms, so we can access the database locally from our fileserver)

     

    Thank you

    Bruno J. F. dos Santos

    Hello Bruno;

    Thanks for positive interest and move to our solution, we will try our best to assist you.

    Kindly check on the below link on how to integrate Dropbox+Jotform.

    http://www.jotform.com/help/77-Where-can-I-find-the-DropBox-integration

    Note that, it is possible Submission entries are dumped into PDF files which are stored on your Dropbox account following this file hierarchy

    --- JotForm
        --- Form Name/Title
            --- Specified Folder Name (taken from values entered in a form field)
                    Submission data PDF (same file name as folder)
                    Uploaded Files

    JotForm cannot pass submission data as a spreadsheet file, so there is no possible way to achieve what you want (auto-updating spreadsheet with form data).

    JotForm submissions are dumped onto its own Dropbox folder, named "JotForm" and not on your public dropbox folder.

    i have also added some more links to assist you find work around ;
