How do I select “shared files" folder in Dropbox as a folder path?


Userlevel 1

I have been working on this for a while, The idea is to export the order (.xls) from woocommerce to dropboxshared files” folder.

The idea is this:

1.At 12.00am, zapier will the export orders in .xls format(from woocommerce) to “shared files” folder in dropbox

But the problem is, in zapier there is no “shared files” as a folder option when I’m choosing the folder destinantion. I only can access the personal folder. The reason why I want to choose the “Shared files” folder is to share the files with my team.

The zapier plan that I am using is Starter Plan. Do I need to upgrade to a specific plan to get access to it?

Do you know a way around this?

There is is still no update on this? Why is the connections then advertised for Teams, if we cannot use a shared folder? Please add my vote too.

Please add us to this list. We are disappointed to learn this is still not a function. This seems so basic to enable.

I wanted to revive our Zapier account and add some Dropbox automation. I am shocked to hear that team folders are not supported. Please add us to the votes @jammer.solijon. We will not upgrade to a paid account if this feature isn't supported.

Y’all, this is crazy that this isn’t supported. Please add my name to the list of people who need this feature. We can not use Zapier without it, period.

Hi @Reuben Mak and @robmartinez!

Since you have not yet been added to any feature requests I wanted to clarify. Are you looking for shared folders or team folders (or maybe both)?

 

@nicksimard   

 

Team folder. Current zapier is unable to access dropbox team folder, that means no automation can be done on a corporate level. This has been an issue we saw 2 years ago and cant believe this is still no update.

Thanks for clarifying that @Reuben Mak! 🙂

I’ve added your vote to the feature request to have Team Folders supported. I can totally understand the frustration in this feature request not being implemented yet. Feature requests are influenced by various factors and at the moment there's still no ETA for this unfortunately.

I’m sorry to not have a more immediate solution here. We’ll definitely send you an email notification the minute it’s added and keep everyone here in the loop on any news we have on this!

Hey friends! 👋

I have good news to share, Team Folders are now supported! 🎉

So if you’ve got a business Dropbox account it’s now possible to select your team space (or your personal space) from the dropdown menu on the Space field.

Happy zapping! ⚡️

Sam,

Is this actually confirmed as working? As I’ve had an ongoing support ticket with Zapier as we’ve been unable to reinstate our Zaps that were previously working, but Zapier support are stating that Team folders are NOT able to be selected for Zaps - can you clarify or show instructions/screenshots on this to prove it’s possible?

@Sam, team spaces are not selectable on an enterprise account with Dropbox. I’m one of the admins on the account and have authenticated with that account in Zapier and the only option is a personal space. Just to clarify, there are two different versions of Dropbox teams, one is called spaces and one is called folders. Team folders are inside a users folder, where as Team Spaces (what Dropbox is updating everyone too) are not selectable in Zapier.
