    Dropbox catalog name based on form values?

    Asked by rogero on June 13, 2016 at 07:04 AM


    In the form I have created the user fills in their reference number for the order that they submit to us. Is there a way to make dropbox create the catalog name based on that value? Preferably "Reference number"_"Project name" as the catalog name.

    You could possibly do that by using form calculation widget. Please follow:

    1. Add form calculation widget to your form and you can "calculate" the name of the field that you can later use for your dropbox folder:

    So the name of folder will be Reference number_project number.

    2. And then just select in your DropBox for name to be that field:

    You can make that field (which I named Name of Field) to be hidden since it is not necessary to be visible.

    Test and let us know if that can work for you.
