    Hi Henry,

    Yes you can setup a folder names automatically. If you would like to organize it using Unique IDs, you can check this guide that we have: http://www.jotform.com/help/255-How-to-setup-folders-using-UniqueID-in-Dropbox 

    You can also just set a specific folder name just after the root folder. You can also see the "Folder Path Preview" on how the path or where the submissions will be organized in the Dropbox. 


    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need more assistance on this.

    Thank you.

    That's great, thanks! 


    Actually I was referring to naming each folder according to the person who uploaded it, rather than numbers. But I see from the integration wizard in that picture that its possible!


    It wasn't gonna be a deal breaker, but I am so glad the feature exists... why didn't I find you guys before?
