Dropbox Integration Details

Launched on Zapier July 24, 2017

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 "Upload 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:
