    Unique ID Folder with option to Name Field Differently

    Asked by DPCREATE on October 17, 2015 at 09:35 AM

    I'd like it unique id folder method above but with different field name instead of unique id field.

    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Setup Sub-Folders in Dropbox Using the Unique ID Widget

    Do you mean you want an alternative means of naming your folder with a different field name?

    I'm not sure if I am understanding you correctly. Please elaborate more with an example if possible.

    I've found out how to do it a different way now thanks. I have got some other related questions


    Is it only possible to have just 2 layers of folders?


    I have a form that will collect application data in two part process,  1st part will create the folder for each submitted form using the dropbox integration.


    Applicants are then narrowed down and a few selected

    For the second round there is a supporting document upload form, i need these entries to go into the relevant folders from the first form.  i.e. i need to place the collected data from the second form in the dropbox folders created from the first form is there any way i can achieve this?


    Many thanks

    No problem and thank you for letting us know about that.

    Since you've got another related question I have split it off into a new thread topic so that there is no confusion even though it is partly related but it is still a new subject.

    We will respond to you about it here http://www.jotform.com/answers/685606.
