Email that's connected to Dropbox folder and uploads content there.

Email that's connected to Dropbox folder and uploads content there.

I would like to know if I am able to set up a client folder on our Dropbox profile, whereby an email link can be provided/generated specifically for that folder, whereby if the client emails any supporting documentation to that applicable email address, the content shall automatically be loaded under the applicable folder. As an accountant I cannot have my email address be the link as I have multiple clients that send documentation. With Xero Accounting Software there is an integration software called Hubdoc that does this whereby each applicable client has an automatic generated email address whereby they have suppliers etc email invoices to and it automatically allocates it to the correct applicable folder. I would just like to know if there can be a similiar process with DropBox instead of the client manually opening the link and uploading the folders there? 

 

So in essence can DropBox generate its own applicable "email address" whereby any documents emailed to that address shall automatically load under the correct folder without the client needing to manually upload the documents?

Hi @TristanduP, welcome to our Community! 

 

Based on everything you've described, the closest feature that we have that comes to mind is Email to Dropbox.

 

When the feature is turned on, an email attachments' folder will be created in your account, and any email attachments will be automatically uploaded to that specific folder. 

 

You can see more about this here. I'd definitely love to know if that's close to your needs.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!
