    How do I name the folders the submitted forms create on dropbox?

    Asked by Greencapsicum on August 24, 2011 at 03:10 AM


    At the moment when a user submits a form linked to my dropbox, the folders are named as a "random" string. Is it possible to have jot form submit to a particular folder and create subfolders for each submissions named appropriately according to the submiter's name ?

    Cheers !

    Hi Simon,

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    Yes you can do that. Whenever users make submissions with a form that is currently integrated with Dropbox, it automatically creates a folder named "JotForm" and a sub folder below it with the same name as the form's title. Every submission for that particular form will then be saved also inside that folder. For example, you've created a form entitled "SampleTitle" and integrated it with dropbox, your data structure would be "JotForm>SampleTitle>submission".

    You can opt to save the submission with preset folder names and settings, as shown below.

    After the integration, you should see "Manage Integration". Click on it and a window will appear.

    Now, you can select the folder name under JotForm's folder in your dropbox account.

    Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us again.
