    Dropbox: how to change submission folder naming?

    Asked by tcgass on July 08, 2012 at 12:56 PM


    I successfully created a form for uploading documents to dropbox. In my dropbox, submissions are stored in folders named by the uploader's first and surname.

    I've cloned this form to have a second upload form in an other language, but here, submissions are stored under a number string. I simply can't find the correct way to change this to first name and surname. Could anybody help me please :-)

    Thanks a lot for your support,

    Hello Thomas

    This is how the dropbox integration works;

    Submissions are being stored in a folder whose name is based on the name of the form. Each submission will automatically generate a PDF file in dropbox whose name is the Submission ID , that is why you see the long number on it.

    But, you can manually rename the folders the same way you did it in the other form.

    Best regards
