    It seems that the Dropbox integration process has been changed.  Before I was able to have several fields populate as part of the folder name.  Now I am limited to one.  Is there a way around this?

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately, the Dropbox integration has been recently updated, and now you can only use one field as the folder's name.

    You can read more about how to configure the integration on this link : http://www.jotform.com/help/77-Upload-to-Dropbox-with-JotForm 

    Hope this helps.

    Regards.

    That seems like a step backward.  We had a specific need that required 2 fields in the title.  Is there any workaround for this?

    You can use this workaround.

    1. Add a Calculation Widget  and set it as hidden.

    2. Open the Wizard and add the fields you want to set as the Folder name :

    The calculation should look like this:

    3. In the integration, select the Calculation widget as name :

    Hope this will help you.

    Hi there! Hoping to ask a follow-up question on this thread.

    I also want to create Dropbox folders whose names are based on two fields. However, one of the fields I want to use is a a "unique ID" field. However, my unique ID field isn't one of the visible options when I try to add a field in form calculator. Is it possible for Form Calculator to use a Unique ID field? If not, is there an alternative work around?

    More explanation in case it helps: Ideally I want my Dropbox folders to look like this:

    School 001

    School 002

    School NNN

    Where "School" is a drop down field that is selected by the user, and "NNN" is a unique ID that is automatically assigned incrementally, as new forms are submitted.
