Whether you use Dropbox as the starting point for your database processes or just need another archival solution, setting up this Zap is bound to save you some time. Once you do, any new file you add to the folder you define on Dropbox will also create a new document on MongoDB automatically, containing all its information. From then on, it's just a question of throwing those files into the folder—we'll handle the rest.

How It Works

  1. A file is added to Dropbox
  2. Zapier automation creates a document on MongoDB

  • Dropbox account
  • MongoDB database
