    I'm trying to find out how to connect dropbox with my forms so that submissions are stored in there. Is this possible with your tool ? Also, I was wondering, if it's possible, how can I see the submissions? is it on dropbox or on jotform? Thanks.

    Hey there,

    Jotform has dozens of integrations that will enhance your form functionality in terms of data collection, sharing, etc. One of these integrations is with Dropbox. Dropbox forms basically allows you to collect form submissions and store them in your Dropbox account. When form users submit a form response, it is directly sent to your Dropbox and saved in a folder you created. You can customize the name of that particular folder (Job Application Form for instance, depending on the form name). You can also add form submission date and time to the file name of each submission, which helps you to categorize and rank. To integrate your form with Dropbox, please go to Settings>Integrations>Dropbox>Authenticate

    In order to see form submissions, you can go to your Dropbox account and find the folder you created. The folder includes all form submission data. If your form includes a file upload field, a subfolder is automatically generated for each submission and uploaded material is saved in that folder as well. Therefore, you don't have to worry about which uploaded file belongs to whom. While you can reach from submissions on Dropbox, you can view them in Jotform as well. This is basically how you can see form submissions in a dropbox file request
