    for example. I'm trying to get dropbox to create a folder using the following naming conventions;

    'Month Year serviceCode'

    When dropbox creates the folder after the form is completed, only the Month field is converted, creating the following file name.

    '03 Year serviceCode' - (for reference I'm using month numbers not names)

    You can select only one field as sub folder inside of DropBox integration. 

    As possible workaround you can add Form Calculation widget to your form and add other 3 fields inside of it, so that you can capture values from all three field. Make sure that fields are set as strings. 

    Then use Form Calculation field as value for Dropbox sub-folder.

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71792099885981 

    Feel free to test it and clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you SO much BJoanna! This solution works perfectly.

    I'm encountering a small bug though where there is still legacy text in the dropbox exporter, even if I post with nothing in the field.

    The text I keep getting as an addition to anything I now put in the field is ' - Year serviceCode'. This is previous text that I've tried in this field however it's still hanging around in the back end encoding.

    I am not sure if I understood your issue correctly. Please provide us a screenshot of the issue and provide us a bit more details about the issue. Also is this issue related to old submissions or to new submissions? 

    I have cloned your form and I sub folder name looks correctly on my end. 

    Did you resolved the issue?
