    Can I get Filepicker uploader to put files directly into my Dropbox?

    Asked by gharty on February 25, 2013 at 11:49 AM

    I love the power of the Filepicker uploader, BUT I am only getting a pdf that has links to the images. Am I not setting something correctly or is the Dropbox intagration only set to place the pdf with links to the files in my Dropbox? If this is the way that it works is there a batch approach to downloading all the links rather than one at a time?

    Yes, it is only set to place a link of the uploaded file in pdf. Moreover, there is no way to have batch downloading at the moment.

    Hopefully we can implement something like what you want in the future.

    That would be very helpful. We use other Dropbox products that will drop files directly. Better picker but not so good on getting usable files. I will look forward to a better solution.

    For the meantime, you can make use of the File Upload that can be found Form Tools. It will save the actual image on your dropbox.

    I have forwarded a request to our developers about the possibility of having filepicker uploads be stored directly in dropbox. Can't give a time frame but will definitely let you know if an update is made. Thanks!

    I use both uploaders but with more files being stored on web services the Filepicker is wonderful. I have a save to Dropbox app but it puts the file with an added prefix to the file name when right clicking the link. I will look forward to a cleaner solution.

    Thanks for a quick responce and a wonderful product.


    Love the JotForms

    FilePicker stores these uploaded files on their end, we do not have any power to control these files, and that means we can not upload these files to any integration that we have (Dropbox, Google Drive etc.).

    Kindest Regards,
