DropboxCreate Folder

If FreshBooks is your client invoicing app and you use Dropbox to share files with your clients, use Zapier to automatically create new Dropbox folders whenever you create FreshBooks clients. Once you set up this integration, new clients created from that point forward will each have an associated Dropbox folder created.

How this FreshbBooks-Dropbox integration works

  1. A new Freshbooks client is created.
  2. Zapier creates a new Dropbox folder with that client data
