    Hi Jotform,

    Two items we need help with:

    1. integrating Dropbox and G-Drive/G-sheets

    How do we integrate? We need a client to be able to upload a video and have it file directly to our Dropbox (we have an existing account).

    The integration is taking a very long time (hours), is this normal? We want a We do not want to use Uploadcare.

    2. Pre-fill specific boxes before sending. Descriptions will be different on each form and we will need to fill them in ourselves before sending to the client. Ex.

    Client 1:

    VIDEO DESCRIPTION: "Dog chasing cat up tree"

    Client 2:

    VIDEO DESCRIPTION: "Old man receives best gift of his life"

    Can we schedule a zoom or Google Hangout chat so we can trouble shoot and built this out together?

    To receive files in and integrate with Dropbox, use the File Upload element. You can turn off the Limit File Size option to allow files up to 1GB.

    Then, follow the next guide to set up the Dropbox integration:

    Upload to Dropbox with Jotform

    The files are supposed to be sent to Dropbox without a significant delay.

    The second question has been moved into a separate thread:

    It will be updated shortly.

    We do not offer video conferencing support, but we will be happy to answer your questions here.
