    Improve Dropbox Integration

    Asked by FutureLink on July 13, 2017 at 12:59 PM

    Currently when integrating with Dropbox, I can either

    1.  Choose to identify each submission by name which then places it in a separate folder within my assigned Dropbox folder. That requires clicking on the assigned folder (example: Scholarship Applications), then clicking on the named folder (example: John Smith), then clicking on the PDF in the folder.


    2. Choose "no folder" option which places the PDF directly in the assigned Dropbox folder (example: Scholarship Applications). However, the PDF is named by its submission ID which is not helpful at all. 

    Can I somehow choose the "no folder" option but have the submissions/PDF be identified by the submitter's name?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to use the {name} field in the "No Folder" option. If you chose the "No Folder" option, the submission ID will be the file name of the PDF file.

    You can use the Name field but it will be inside the folder, see screen animation below:

    Hope that helps. Thank you for your understanding.
