Using custom value to select Folder in Dropbox action

I’ve been pulling my hair out on this one but hopefully it’s a simple fix. 

I’m following a training video on setting up a particular multi step zap. I’m on #7 and now I can’t proceed as the things in the drop down that I’m seeing are not the same as I have in mine. I’ve upgraded both zapier and dropbox, thinking this might correct it but no. This is what I want to see and work through. I’ll put what I see below this image. 

This is what I see below. 



You can see that even in the title the one i want (top image) says “customize text file” and has 4 options. The one I see says “set up action” and the choices are different. 


HELPPP! lol. I’m going crazy with this. Thank you!!!!

Hi @bummy919,

You need to click on the custom tab as shown here:

 When you click on that, you will have the ability to add custom value there instead of picking up one. 


However, this folder field should only contain the ID of the folder and not any text, so don’t write text there. If you have written what you’d like to achieve then I could’ve answered better.
