    How to upload files to dropbox/google drive/third party storage and get the link in notification email

    Asked by q800blog on January 05, 2016 at 06:59 AM

    I am now integrating with dropbox with jotform so that users of my site can upload files to dropbox using jot form. I want to get the uploaded file url in dropbox/google drive in confirmation/notification email.  just like the pdf attachment option. but instead of jotform link I want link from dropbox / google drive/ box.net etc.    please consider implementing this feature also. that will add thousands of new ideas and configurations using jotform...

    dropbox and email in

    It seems like you have opened a couple of threads with the same concern. Please avoid creating multiple threads to avoid confusion and for us to better assist you.

    Currently, I believe it is not possible to actually get the direct link from Dropbox, Google Drive or other 3rd party storage services to where the files are uploaded. We can only provide links of uploaded files directly stored in our servers. The request you are having seems to be in general. Please note that Dropbox, Google Drive and other 3rd party storage services are different platforms.

    I can forward a feature request but it would be best to focus on ONE 3rd party storage service (ex. Dropbox), that would help our developers to focus on one platform.
