    [Dropbox Integration] Allow field {tags} to be used on path

    Asked by karen.duley1 on November 23, 2014 at 07:54 PM

    How to create more folders in Dropbox Subfolder?

    Currently you can only have one subfolder (the submission folder) on the Dropbox integration. Can you advise if there is a way to add more and if this is going to be added as a feature in the future?  As it stands, only having one subfolder is unusable.

    Hello karen.duley1,

    Yes that is correct. The dropbox integration will only create one subfolder for every submission you receive in your form. 

    Do you want to create folders inside the submission folder? Please explain your requirement a bit more in detail for us to be able to understand on why you need more subfolder and what will be stored inside that.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Hi, yes I want to create subfolders in the submissions folder.  Each user will fill out the form to register for events on different dates.  They will be uploading documents with the form for each event.  


    The structure I want is 


    Root Folder/Event date/User Name/

    It seems to be not currently possible with our Dropbox integration to customize the path in that way.

    I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread to be able to use field {tags} on the Dropbox path. It should let users create custom folder name structures.

    There is no ETA for when it will be implemented, but we will let you know once we have any updates.

    Has this yet been launched because it would save a lot of Jotform users a lot of trouble. 


    Thanks =)
