Dropbox Integration - Creating subfolder and changing file name

    Asked on February 10, 2014 at 03:29 PM

    I have the Dropbox integration successfully authenticated and setup.  I'm looking to automate more of the process so that things are more organized.

    Two questions:

    1.  I know how to define the folder path.  Is there a way to also get the integration to create a subfolder wihtin that folder?  Furthermore, can I define the naming format of that subfolder (just as I can when I define the main folder path)?

    2.  How do I define the file name?

     

    I had this all successfully setup before, however, I had to change ownership of the main Dropbox folder and therefore had to redo all of my integrations on Dropbox for all of my forms.  As I have been updating things, it looks like some things have been changed in JotForm so that I can no longer define the subfolders or file names as mentioned above.  I"m just trying to get that functionality back.

    Thanks.

    The integration works with a Root Folder for your integration and a Submission Folder name
    that can be customized as shown below:

    2.  How do I define the file name?

    Unfortunately the filename of the submissions is not editable.

     

    Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    Thanks for the response.  

    I would like to use this filepath:

    Dropbox root/JotForm/[Form Title]/Full Name

    However, I am unable to insert the Form Title under the "Submission Folder Name."  Is there a way to get the Form Title as the Submission Folder Name?

     

    Basically I am trying to do what you outlined, with the addition of putting that all under a parent level folder called "JotForm" instead of using my Dropbox root folder.

    I see no option to achieved that base on the current version of the Dropbox Integration. How about using both user defined as the folder names?

    Example:

    This seems to be the closest setup you can have. You can also use Hidden Box tool under Widgets and enter your form title as the default value. Then set the hidden box field as one of the folder name.

    Example:

    Hope this still helps. Regards!
