    Hi, i have some problems when trying to upload files to dropbox either via direct integration or zapier.

    This is from zapier support.

    It looks like this is happening because there's some html formatting coming through when Jotform sends us that file link: http://cl.ly/0X3k1u0h1c24. Generally speaking, attachment fields can only take direct file objects or direct download links.


    Also, can an uploaded file be carried over to another form? Like the url filled fields from one form to another. I am looking to make a form and upload files on it, then on submit to generate an url to another form with populated fields from the first one, including the uploaded files.

    What is exactly the problem? Are the files not going through your Dropbox account? Please note the following:

    1. For our Dropbox integration (https://www.jotform.com/help/77-Upload-to-Dropbox-with-JotForm). Files are automatically uploaded to your dropbox account. The folder/file name will be based on the settings during the integration.

    2. For the Dropbox integration through Zapier. A text file will be created in your dropbox account/folder. The text file will contain the selected field data that is submitted in the form. As far as I could see, there is no way you can automatically upload the file via Zapier.
