    Dropbox Integration: Assign a form field value in the submission PDF name.

    Asked by sandymacrae on June 06, 2016 at 06:29 AM

    I want to include the name of the person submitting the form (it is a field in the form!) into the Filename of the PDF that is uploaded to my Dropbox.  This was simple in the previous incarnation but I CANNOT find a way to do this and it insists on using a seemingly random number for the filename!   What am I missing?

    Hello sandymacrae,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to rename the submission PDF file name. Is that correct?

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to rename the submission PDF file name which gets uploaded to integrated dropbox folder. Please be noted that submission ID is added in the PDF to ensure that the file is unique and not overwritten. I fill send a feature request to our backend team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    For now, I would suggest you to configure your dropbox integration to include form field value in the sub folder name. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
