    I've tried (unsuccessfully) several times to link my DropBox profile to JotForm. The popup comes up asking me to allow JotForm access to my DropBox, and when I click allow it just closes but doesn't connect the two accounts. Every time I click to "Send Submissions to DropBox," it sends me through the same vicious cycle. Help!

    I'm sorry to hear that this has become an inconveinence to you. I know awhile back we were doing some routine maintenance to Dropbox to optimize it and fix some previously known problems with it. But as far as I know this has already been fully resolved with that. I did an investigation to check the Dropbox Integration on a clone of one of your forms and I didn't come across any issues on my Testing Account.

    I would strongly advise that you clear your form cache and also make sure that you clear your browser cache. This will refresh everything and then please try the Dropbox Integration again to see if this helps.

    I've tried clearing both caches and it still says it can't integrate. I've tried on Firefox AND Internet Explorer. It keeps sending me in a cycle trying to allow access but it's never granted. HELP!

    I wish I had phone support to call for this issue because it's very frustrating having to rely on forums to communicate the issue.

    Hi, since you mentioned "Send Submissions to DropBox". I'm pretty sure you're at Submission view page. You should read the warning from there. That one is going to be removed soon. So I advice to use the new process.

    The latest Dropbox integration can be found on the Form Editor. Refer to the screenshot given by kade.
    Or follow this link on how to properly integrate your form with Dropbox.

    Hope that helps you. If you encounter anymore problems, let us know.

    Thank you,
