Upload files to a specific folder using javascript

If you aren't sure what my advice mean, better keep your way of coding for now.

Would be enough to concatenate file name to the folder path. Transform everything in your code which seems:

dbx.filesUpload({path: '/' + fileName, contents: file})

To something like:

 

dbx.filesUpload({path: '/' + folderName + '/' + fileName, contents: file})

Seems you just forgot it.

Hope this helps.

Hi @h_vohra,

I'm just curious, Is there any problem outside fact that you put your file on root level, not in just created folder? You don't report any actual issue!

One advice: when you refer to particular place (folder), it's better practice avoid path in text form, use id instead. Just advice, nothing more (id is more stable way).

Different users will upload files from the form, so I need it to go on different folders to distinguish properly.

 

Can you please help me how to get the ID, and add it in the path , I tried adding the folder name in path, but it gave error
