    Drop several forms with different names into same DropBox folder

    Asked by sommerville88 on April 12, 2017 at 07:11 PM

    I have 3 forms Form1 form2 and form3.

    I create a date+name field in form1 and pass it to forms 2 and 3. this field will be my subfolder and file name.

    The dropbox integration creates a sub-folder with that field when i submit form1 and place the pdf file within that sub-folder with the same name.

       * for example  DropBox/Main folder/1-1-2017 John Doe/1-1-2017 John Doe.pdf

    Now I want the user to fill out forms 2 and 3, but i want them to drop into the same folder with different names

       * for example  DropBox/Main folder/1-1-2017 John Doe/1-1-2017 John Doe-Form2.pdf

       * for example  DropBox/Main folder/1-1-2017 John Doe/1-1-2017 John Doe-Form3.pdf

    Now that sub-folder has 3 PDF files in it.

    How do I do this?

    Please allow me to inform you that once you integrate your other 2 forms with dropbox, it will create a separate folder on your dropbox account. So, it is not possible to have the 3 pdf files on the subfolder from the responses of the different forms. You can only have 3 PDF files in the same folder from one form.
