    1. If we use the Dropbox integration, does the file upload skip storing it with Jotform and only stores it with Dropbox, or is the data stored in both Jotform and Dropbox?

    Data will be stored in both. If you don't want to store data in Jotform, you can use the auto delete app. This will automatically delete the data in your Jotform account and will store in your Dropbox only.

    Oh one more thing, if I do use this feature is it possible to have Jotform send over the URL in Zapier for Dropbox, not Jotform?

    Hi Jon, 

    I'm not quite sure I understand your question I'm afraid, you can sent a url from the form to Zapier - how you do that though can depend on where you're sending it to from Zapier.

    Let me know though!

    It’s okay, we’re not going to go that route anymore anyways so the answer doesn’t matter. Thank you for your help.
