Summary: Connecting to Dropbox Business gives you the ability to automate workflows using files located in your Dropbox. Once you are connected to Dropbox you can use our Zibots to create automation flows.

Where is the feature applied? To connect to Dropbox you need to click on the Connect tab, open the Cloud storage menu, and then click on Connect Cloud Storage before selecting Dropbox Business from the list

How does it work?

When you click on Dropbox Business, Ziflow will then walk you through the connection process of adding a Dropbox Business account.

Step 1: Enter your Dropbox credentials to enable Ziflow to link your account.

Step 2: Confirm you allow Ziflow to access your Dropbox account.


Step 3: You will be asked …

  1. If you want to create a new folder just for Ziflow - this folder will be the point from which Ziflow will access your files. Please note that Ziflow will be able to access any subfolders that are created inside your new folder but it will not be able to access any files or folders outside of the folder you create.

  2. If you want to point Ziflow to an existing folder inside your Dropbox structure simply click on “Sync a particular folder” but again please note Ziflow will then have access to all files and folders and any subfolders within the folder you choose.

Step 4: Either …

  1. Type in a new folder name for Ziflow to access

  2. Navigate to an existing folder.

You're done … you should now see your Dropbox Business account listed inside your Connections area.

If you desire you are also able to rename the Dropbox account to something else inside Ziflow.
