Specify subfolder in Dropbox CSV export

  1. What is your feature/integration request?

We like to be able to specify which subfolder in our Dropbox account a CSV should export to.

  1. What problem would this feature/integration solve?

Currently, it can only export to the parent directory. This means we have random CSV files dumping into the top level directory of a shared dropbox. This makes it difficult to easily perform any automation on these files, which also can’t be uniquely named in Parabola.

  1. How do you solve/workaround this problem today?

Some tedious workarounds in Zapier.

One the export file is established you can move it into a Dropbox subfolder and the flow will still find it. This is because the flow uses a unique identified that is maintained regardless of the folder that the file resides in. However, this i a bit of a pain because you need to run the flow the first time to create the file in the parent directly prior to moving it into a subfolder.
