That would make it just one form to create output to multiple folders with out having to clone forms.
FormName:'John-Doe', <-------------------------------------- Here
<a class="lightbox-22941909585263" style="cursor:pointer;color:blue;text-decoration:underline;">John-Doe</a>

If I understood you correctly, you meant to use the form's source code to customize the dropbox integration process. Any customization of the form code outside the jotform form builder is not necessarily recommended. However, if you have the means and the resources to achieved the customization you need, then, you can easily do this.
As is now, the form dropbox integration only allows 1 folder to choose during the integration process.
Hope this help. Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

I think you may have answered my question. I wanted to bring attention tot he field marked "Here".

I'm not quite sure if the dropbox naming is possible but you can use iframe parameters with your lightbox code to prepopulate fields. Here's a more detailed guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/83-Adding-parameters-in-Lightbox-and-Feedback-forms

Thanks but I don't want to populate fields, I want to controll the form name. That name ends up being the name of the DropBox folder under e.g. JotForm/formName.
I'm going to have hundreds of users so I don't want to manually clone a form for each one. This way I could populate the formName data with their UserName and the folder ends up being their Wordpress Username.
It would save me a load of work.
Is it possible to reverse engineer it?

Is the dropbox foldername settings not suitable? (check the last part of this guide) http://www.jotform.com/help/77-Upload-to-Dropbox-with-JotForm
Unfortunately there's no other way for controlling the dropbox folder naming other than configuring the dropbox integration settings.

Uploaded files are are stored on your Dropbox account following this folder hierarchy
--- Form Name/Title
--- Specified Folder Name (taken from values entered in a form field)
Submission data PDF (same file name as folder)
I'm refering to the middle level in the hierarchy. I am also using the "Specified Folder" option but that's not the one I'm trying to pass to. I want to control the "Form Name/Title" externaly. I know it's not supported but I still refuse to beleive it's impossible.

Thanks for the clarification and for your additional details, Tim. That helps us to understand more clearly. I have now added this as a feature request to our users wishlist, though I can't add an assurance if this will be implemented sooner because our developers are the one to decide on this. We'll just let you know here once we have updates for you.

That would help. Eventually we may have thousands of cleints and I could handle them all with just one form. (not have to clone thousands of times.)
