    We usually name our projects with both an ID number and a name. For example:
    "01234 - Job Name From Form Field"
    Is there a way to combine the unique ID at the start with text to follow?

    Is it possible to automatically have a csv-file of the data of the filled form in the Dropbox-folder (together with the uploaded files and the pdf)?

    This feature looks interesting. Could the number be used to create a customer identifier that future orders can then be appended to, so long as the identifier is used??

    Why does my dropbox integration look different? I'd like these options but can't see it this way.


    I'd like it unique id folder method above but with different field name instead of unique id field.

    I'd much RATHER have EACH FILE appended w/ the name, w/ all files in the same subfolder of a main folder.
    IE: Mainfolder/FormNameFolder/AllPDFswithUniqueFormNames
    How can that be done?

    Do I have to set up an account with Dropbox?
