How to forward Wufoo file attachments to Dropbox

Wufoo large file attachments forwarded to dropbox: how-to workflow

Wufoo has a limited file size capacity for every entry form. We can use Dropbox integration to link it with. This means that when a customer uploads a file (or several files like photos, videos, pdfs) to your Wufoo form, the files are automatically added to your Dropbox account in a folder you specify.

Steps:

1. Login/create a Dropbox account and create a folder. This is where the wufoo attachments will go:
(in this example I created a folder “web support files”)

 
2. Still on dropbox, SHARE this folder to the editor/user who requested the form. You can delegate edits or reads on to this folder you have created since you are the owner.
 
3. Login to Wufoo and add an “Upload field” field to the editor’s form:

 
4. Navigate to ‘Notification Settings’. Select DROPBOX from dropdown menu. Then click ‘Add Integration’ button just below it:

 
5. Next screen will ask you to Authenticate your Dropbox Username & Password:

 
6. Hit “Connect to Dropbox”. A screen will Popup similar to this:

 
If you were already logged in, this popup will not show. Instead, it will pull automatically the first folder you had created earlier from Dropbox…

 
7. Or you can select a different Dropbox folder where you want files uploaded through your form and hit SAVE.

tip:
If you have a Wufoo file upload form and a Dropbox account, you can use our Dropbox integration to link the two together. This means that when a customer uploads a file to your Wufoo form, the file is automatically added to your Dropbox account in a folder you specify, just like magic.
