Back up your Dropbox effortlessly by having this Dropbox-Google Docs integration create copies in Google Docs of new files that are added to your Dropbox. This Zap will trigger for all new files once it is set up.

Note: Make sure any text files added to Dropbox are not empty, as this Zap will not trigger for blank files.

How It Works

  1. A file is added to your Dropbox
  2. Zapier automation creates a copy in Google Docs
