Dropbox Integration Details

Launched on Zapier October 24, 2011

Keeping track of messages and files across multiple platforms takes way too much energy. By using Zapier with Dropbox, you can automatically store and share everything from email attachments to social media posts—all in one place. You can also set up notifications in your platform of choice for changes and additions made to your Dropbox folders.

Here are some creative ways to use Dropbox with Zapier:

  • Keep track of high priority information that's sent to your inbox. When an email includes important notes, forward it to your free zapiermail.com address to save the email as a Dropbox file.
  • Collect all your form submissions and survey results in a single folder. Compile Typeform, Wufoo, or JotForm entries as Dropbox files and easily share them with your clients or your team.
  • Avoid endless scrolling to track down last year's holiday themed social media blast. Save a backup of your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn posts in Dropbox.

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New File in Folder") and Actions (like "Create or Append to Text File") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following Dropbox Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:

Create or Append to Text File

Adds a new line to an existing text file, or creates a file if it doesn't exist.

Upload File

Upload an existing file or attachment not bigger than 100 MB.

Create Text File

Creates a brand new text file from plain text content you specify.

Create Folder

Creates a brand new folder at the path you specify.

Create Shared Link

Creates a shared link for a file.

Find Folder

Find File

Search for a specific file by name. Make sure the number of files/folders in the watched folder does not exceed 4000.

Find File (Content Search)

Searches for files in a folder that match a search term in the contents or name. Requires a Dropbox Business account.

New File in Folder

Triggers when a new file is added to a folder. Make sure the number of files/folders in the watched folder does not exceed 4000.

New Folder
