Get an RSS Feed of All New Files in Your Dropbox

Ever wanted a simple way to know when files are added to your Dropbox or a specific Dropbox folder? Especially if you have a shared team Dropbox folder, sometimes you'll want to know when new files are added. If you're always checking your RSS feeds for new posts, this is the integration for you as it'll let you find out about your new Dropbox files right along with the the rest of your news feeds.

How it Works:

Zapier will watch the Dropbox folder of your choice for new files. Whenever anything's added, it'll publish the new item on your RSS feed so you can get notified about all of the new files.

What You Need:

  1. A Dropbox Account
  2. A feed reader like Feedly to subscribe to your RSS feed

Got that? Then let's get started.
