    Any Way To Save All The Uploaded Files In A Separate Folder

    Asked by vossen on January 26, 2017 at 05:56 PM

    I just tested my form and see that it saves a PDF to the folder I specified within Dropbox. This is great for the form information, such as the submitter's contact details and whatnot, but when it comes to the attached files it is very tedious to then have to click each link and download/save each file individually. 

    The users that will be submitting files through this form will typically be submitting 20-50 files of 3-10mb size each, and then my assistant will then be downloading them for processing on our end before we publish through our website. It would be ideal if the files were saved to a unique folder each time the form is submitted, so my assistant can download that entire folder with one click and import it into our catalogue. How can I direct submitted files from my form into a unique folder within Dropbox with every submission?Is this possible?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to save all the uploaded files in a separate folder. However, an alternative I can suggest would be to use the File Upload field instead of the Drag and Drop widget. 

    When you use the File Upload field, all the files uploaded by the user will be included in the Dropbox submission folder, the same folder where the submission pdf is located.

    Here's how it will look in your dropox folder:
