    We are moving everything to digital in the classroom - assignments, evaluations, quizzes, etc. I'm gonna create a from where students can upload their weekly assignments and save them our dropbox account. I was wondering if your product has a similar feature. If yes, I believe we can work together.

    Hi Jacqueline,

    You've come to the right place. Jotform allows you to do everything you've just mentioned. We do offer many integrations in Jotform which will enables faster and smoother data collection. Dropbox integration helps you to organize your form data and store them.

    When you integrate your forms with Dropbox, form submissions are stored in Jotform database as well as in your Dropbox account. A new folder is automatically created in your Dropbox account named after form title and each submission is saved under this folder. Therefore, you won't have to deal with any mess when it comes to organization of your form data. You can see how Dropbox folder is organized for different form types.

    If you'd like to collect files with your form, you can add a file upload field in your form. Various types of files are allowed with this button from docx to mpg. If you'd like to set a maximum limit for file size - since all will be sent to Dropbox -, you can update it from field settings. Moreover, you can use our widgets such as Drag and Drop Upload or Transloadit.

    If you had integrated your form with Dropbox, all uploaded will be saved in your Dropbox account with related form submission. Overall, Dropbox forms will help you to collect files through forms and store them in your Dropbox account.
