How to Use the Dropbox Integration

The Dropbox integration allows you to sync any files submitted through your forms to your Dropbox. These could be resumes, logos, proofs etc. Note, to use this integration you first need to have a Dropbox account.

How it’s done:

Connect your Dropbox Account to Blitzen

Navigate to the ‘Integrations’ section in the left-side panel and click on the ‘Dropbox’ app.

Click ‘Connect’ in the right-side panel.

You will be directed to log in with your existing credentials and asked to give Blitzen permission to access the app. Don’t worry, we won’t mess with the stuff that’s already there!

Make sure that the app is on by moving the app slider to ‘On’

If, for any reason, you would like to disable this app, just move the slider to ‘Off’ or disconnect it all together (How to Disconnect an App).

Create a Workflow with the Dropbox App

Navigate to the  ‘Workflow’ section in the left-side panel and create a new workflow (How to Create a Workflow). You can also edit an existing workflow.

Choose an input   (How to Choose an Input). The only type of form you can use the Dropbox app with is one that contains the ‘File Upload’ field.


Drag the Dropbox App over into your workflow. 

Configure Dropbox

You can configure the app by clicking the ‘+’ icon.

From here you will see a number of options.

The default setting is to sync all submissions from the input form or survey. If that is what you wish to do skip the following section.


If you do not want to sync all submission simply add filters. Click ‘Add custom filter’ and use the three fields to create a segment.

You are able to create any number of filters, just make sure they do not contradict each other. filters.png

To delete a filter simply click on the ‘x’ icon in the right corner. delete-filter.png

You will then be asked to choose the destination your files will sync to.


You will be asked to select a folder you wish your files to be synced to. You will also get the opportunity to add a unique identifier to your files so that you can tell who the submissions came from. The best identifier is a name or an email, but you can use any field you would like. Use the drop-down to select the desired field.

The changes will save automatically.

Now every time a file is submitted through the form it will be sent immediately to your Dropbox like so:
