    I am setting up Dropbox integration. I can define the top-level folder in Dropbox, and a nested folder, but that's it. Our folder structure is Dropbox/Scholarships/Event1/Applicant Name/. Using this latest version of the integration, I can't point do the Applicant Name folder, because the options only offer one level of folder nesting. Is there a way to accomplish this?

    In order to make your submissions go to a deeper / nested level of folders in Dropbox, please simply enter your folder path by using a forward slash as a separator between folders:

    Scholarships/Event1

    Inside your Dropbox, it will create the main folder "Scholarships", inside which there will be folder "Event1", and only inside this folder will the actual submissions be copied.

    When it comes to using the applicant's name as the name of the folder inside the "Event1", you can do this as well by clicking on the little pencil shaped icon that defines individual submission folders:

    It will allow you to pick a form field to be used as the submission folder of each individual submission, inside the Scholarships > Event1 folder:
