    Dropbox "unique ID" as folder name

    Asked by pauldjoyce on February 20, 2015 at 01:26 AM


    I've added a UniqueID to my form. And I've integrated jotform with dropbox. I want the folder in Dropbox to be named after the UniqueID. However, when click on the dropdown menu next to "Submission Folder Name" I get lots of choices, but Unique ID is not on the list. So, I can't give the Dropbox folder the same name as the UniqueID. I know that I should be able to do this because it's possible on the explanation page, but it doesn't work for me. 

    Thanks you for your help!

    Please ignore my question! I've got it figured out now. I hadn't given a name to my "uniqueID" field, so I didn't know what to select to choose it as the folder name. I assumed that that field was automatically called "Unique ID".

    Thank you for the update, I am glad to hear that you were able to resolve the issue.

    I would only like to add a link for such setup for anyone looking for the same setup with their DropBox: How to setup folders using UniqueID in Dropbox
