Dropbox Save folder

    Asked on January 25, 2016 at 03:39 PM

    I integrated dropbox to my forms. I moved the folder that jotform created in a subfolder of a different file in the tree. Instead of dropbox putting new submissions there, It wants to create a new folder in my main dropbox folder.

    Is there a way to change that?

    Type in the name of the folder on the first field on the integration, then the subfolder that you want it to save into.

    I cloned one of your forms and tested the integration. It seems to save the submission to the folder that I have setup.

    Let me know if the issue still persists and I'll be glad to help you further.

    That didn't work for me. I am testing on the Business Registration form. Here is a screen shot of where it put the form, in my root folder

    Here is the URL of where I want the file to go to:


    Here is how I setup the integration:

    BTW...I found a bug in your site.

    If I understand you correctly, you would like to integrate jotform to a subfolder in your dropbox account. Unfortunately, this is not possible. When you integrate jotform with dropbox or google drive, it will always create under the main folder.

    If you would like I can create a new feature request, so you can select the subfolder where you wish to save the information. 

    I personally think it will not be accepted, but if you wish I will do it.

    Yes please do that. I will have to constantly move the files to the correct sub-folder. Thanks for your help. 


    Also, did you take note of the bug that I found?

    I will submit a feature request, however, as my colleague stated, it is unlikely that the ability to select a previously created sub-folder from your Dropbox account to place the submissions in to will be added.

    In regards to the bug, I am unable to reproduce it on my end.  Here is how it looks in both FireFox and Chrome with the integration window loaded:
