Dropbox Integration: Change Folder location to Apps Folder

  • Profile Image
    Asked on July 06, 2013 at 08:05 AM

    Is there any way to move the JotForm folder within Dropbox from the root to the /Apps folder.

    All other applications I have that publish to Dropbox put their folders in a subfolder called /Apps which appears to be the more common and correct way to publish App data to dropbox.  But I can find no settings for this in JotForm.

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, that is not possible. Our Dropbox Integration will create a folder called "Jotform" as the Main Folder.

    But let me forward this thread to our developers as a feature request. We'll keep you udpated.

    Hi there, Welvin is correct we only set "JotForm" as the main folder when integrating to Dropbox.
    But can you please elaborate what is your motive doing so? And how would you like it to be implemented? Any samples you can show us? or maybe what you are looking for is the same as the BOX integration( Have you tried to look it? )

    Basically, the motive is to keep the Dropbox root clean and uncluttered.
    As an example, I have an application that backs up my websites to my dropbox. This application, creates a sub-folder called UpdraftPlus within a folder called /Apps off of the root of the Dropbox. Another application called Transmit stores its favorites information in a sub-folder called /Transmit off of the root of the Dropbox as well...
    So bascially I would like for Jotform to also allow for it's data folder to reside under the /Apps folder instead of at the root of the Dropbox.
    I currently see no way to accomplish this within the existing plug-in interface or within the setup of the Jotform.
    I have uploaded a photo for your review...
    Thank you for your interest in this as an option in the future.
    Kindest Regards,
    - Basil

    Hi, with the new version of the Dropbox integration. I think it can now solve your problem.
    We add a full customization for folder parth, even root directories.

    You can now set your own Folder as the root instead of static JotForm
    You need to reintegrate your form with Dropbox to get the newest update for Dropbox integration.

    Look the image below:

    You can also 'Manage' your integration now. Similar to the option from Submission page(which will remove soon)
