Dropbox connector

What is Dropbox?

Dropbox offers cloud storage, file synchronization, and personal cloud solutions for everyone.

About Kissflow's Dropbox integration

Kissflow Integration's Dropbox connector allows you to link and synchronize your Dropbox folders and files with popular third-party apps and Kissflow apps. To integrate with Dropbox, you must have an active Dropbox account and be a paid Kissflow customer.

Use the Dropbox connector to receive data from other flows or apps in order to perform particular actions. For the time being, the Dropbox connector does not support any trigger events.

You can, for example, configure a workflow to save your Kissflow Process attachments to Dropbox. The Dropbox connector integration allows you to save these attachments to specific Dropbox folders.
