    If you want to configure your dropbox integration with the UniqueID, please follow the steps below:

    a) Add a Unique ID field in your form (search it under Widgets). This is a hidden field




    b) Set this field as the primary folder in Dropbox



    The submissions will be then shown in separate Folders

    Thank you, this helps a bit but still provides me with a small problem.  my form is a complaint for that is used by several internal people.  when a inbound call advises of a service complaint the office staff fill int he form and submit.  i have the thank you provide with a Unique ID so they can jot the info down pertaining to a workorder they may have to deal with, a soft thank you email to the caller, a full detail to me inhouse, a short broken iphone designed for the leader in the field and a dropbox file for the CEO so that he can overview the days complaints.  while away as he has the dropbox link.  being able to see now by the unique ID helps but it still produces intot a folder.  would be nice to save the file in the root folder and by the unique id  only as the file name..

    @snwinfo

    On the new Dropbox integration wizard you can create your custom folder as the main folder and uniqueID as the folder name where submissions data and files will be stored.

    Here's an example:

    I hope this helps. Unfortunately, this is the only possible way for now.

    Regards!

    its still 1 too many folders....

     

    what is required is RootFolder / {file-UniqueID} 

     

    can we get rid on the unnessary second folder as it only has 1 file in at at a time...

    @Snwinfo,

    Unfortunately, this is not possible with our current Dropbox integration. I am escalating one more feature request ticket about adding the field {tags} to the Dropbox path.

    Once it is implemented you will be able to use something like:

    Dropbox/Folder/{tag}
    Dropbox/{tag}
    etc.

    We can not provide any ETA, but we will update this thread if we have any updates.
