Hi, I noticed that currently you do not allow submitted files to be saved in a more advanced folder structure when using dropbox, which you mentioned when somone else asked a similar question:
I would like submissions from my students to be sorted into a folder for their class, and then a folder by their name, and at the moment their is no facility to do this.
I was wondering if this is something you are planning on adding at some point in the near future?
However I noticed when a student accidently added a / symbol to their name, it created folders in multiple levels, so I was wondering if this would be a mechanism to allow this folder structuring to work? While I could ask my students to enter their name as, for example, "7F/Firstname", which would create the folder structure I'm after, I'm dealing with 100 twelve year olds, and I think that this would just get messy!
When creating the folder names, you already concatenate the first name and the last name, is there a way you could add the / character to allow multiple folder levels?

I am afraid there isn't a way to automatically add the forward slash character in an entered value.
A workaround I'd like to suggest to you is to create separate forms for each class and a 'menu form' which will conditionally display the form appropriate to the class (or section) selected by the student.
The 'menu form' will work in this manner:
Using this workaround, you will be able to achieve the same directory structure you're after.
-- Class Name
-- Student Name
The solution I am proposing requires the use of Conditional Logic to hide or display the form (embeddeded using Free Text Tool).
If you're interested, please hit me up so I can give you specific instructions on how this can be achieved.
