    Client Uploads to Dropbox (or similar)

    Asked by Dan Barker  on March 21, 2016 at 06:30 PM


    I'm looking to build a website that sells products which once purchased, allows the customer to upload multiple files to me (up to 1000 image files - jpeg or RAW). An example of this working can be seen at http://theimagesalon.com/edit-my-photographs


    Would a jotform with Dropbox integration be able to do this? If not, do you have another suggestion please?


    Many thanks,

    You can already do this using JotForm Dropbox integration.

    Here is the user guide: Upload-to-Dropbox-with-JotForm

    You can find other similar Upload integation to JotForm here.

    If you only intend to host the uploaded files on your own server you can also use FTP integration instead : How-to-Enable-FTP-on-Form-Submissions

    To learn more JotForm Upload please refer to this article/guide.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks very much for your quick reply!
    Can this automatically create a folder within Dropbox with a name that links to the customer order number?

    Yes, for example, it will create automatically a folder, this will be the main folder, it will have as name your form's name by default, you may also change it if you want, then it will create a folder per submission, with a PDF file with the submitted data and if your users upload some files then they will be attached on that folder as well. 

    On each folder that is created in the main form, you are able to select a name, you may set a static name or select one of the fields in the form, it will take the value submitted on that field.
