    What is the format for creating a file in Dropbox named by the field contents in the form.

    IE. I have a form that has fields firstname and surname

    On Submit I want to create a file in Dropbox called firstname surname (obviously using the contents of those two fields.

    In the second folder box of the Dropbox Integration setup is it {firstname}{surname} or what? I know it works but have forgotten how to do it.

    I remembered how to do it.

    Create a hidden field with the combined firstname & surname and use the dropdown to insert this in the second integration box.

    It seems that you have already found a solution. But, I would like to add that there is also an option to take advantage of Full Name field instead of 2 Short Text Entries. It allows to get the values of first and last name in 1 step:
