Filepicker uploads to dropbox in usable form (i.e. actual files)

    The Dropbox integration for files uploaded using FilePicker.io is barely useful since all you get is a PDF with hyperlinks to the uploaded documents. What most people would want - certainly what's useful to our system - is getting the actual files, not links to them.

    One of the main advantages to FilePicker.IO versus the JF file uploader is the ability to drag-and-drop and upload multiple files at at once. But, by inviting users to upload batches of files that must then be manually downloaded one by one creates an efficiency-killer bottleneck.

    I have sent the feature request ticket to our Developers. However, it may be not that easy to implement the feature, since the data is being processed by 3rd party tool (Filepicker.io).

    In the meantime, you can try our Upload field with the Allow Multiple option enabled. It works with multiple files & drag and drop.

    Thank you.
