How Do I build a templated folder in Dropbox using a trigger in

I am attempting to use a Item status change to trigger a folder being set up in Dropbox.  (I think I have gotten this far)  I would also like that folder to be created from a “folder template” that we have built. And for the file names to be updated depending on the name of the top line folder - which is determined by the item name.  


I am not sure this level of automation is possible.  If so, is there a video of the build process?  

Thank you in advance for your brilliance.

Hi @MondayMaven 

Good question.

Try using this Zap action: Dropbox - Create Folder


You can create nested subfolders by mapping the parent folder between Zap steps using the Custom option.
