Hi @Dream Baller 

Good question.

Zaps work while turned ON for new data going forward.

You’ll need to perform the Zap trigger event after the Zap has been turned ON.

Hi @Troy Tessalone Thanks for the help I tried but I am getting only the folder link only but I want Image links which is in the folder. Even though I tried both steps as well nothing worked.

We’ll need to see detailed screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured in order to have context.

Make sure to use this Zap trigger: Dropbox - New File in Folder

This will provide the Share Link of the File.

If you want the download link then you need to use a Formatter > Text > Replace step to change the end from dl=0 to dl=1.


Then make sure to turn the Zap ON and test by adding new files to the Dropbox Folder.

Existing Files in the Dropbox Folder won’t trigger the Zap.

NOTE: The Dropbox Zap trigger being used is scheduled, meaning it can take from 1-15 minutes to trigger depending on your Zapier plan.
