Hi @duknox 

You may have to go with a more technical approach and use the Dropbox API to search for files: https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#files-search

This can be done with a Webhooks action step: https://zapier.com/apps/webhook/integrations

Hi @duknox!

Were you able to find an answer to this goal? I’m not sure it’s possible to truly randomly select a file out of Dropbox with a Zap action, but if you found a way, feel free to let us know!
