Is there any way for IFTTT to monitor nested folders (i.e. subfolders) in Dropbox as oppose to top level folders? The google drive IFTTT integration appears to offer this capability, but I can't see you can do this with dropbox..
Yes, the Dropbox API certainly offers the ability to access and monitor nested folder/subfolders at any depth. (For example, /2/files/list_folder[/continue] can be used to access any folder level, and also offers a "recursive" option. And Dropbox webhooks notify of changes at any depth.)
I can't speak to what functionality IFTTT has or hasn't implemented though, so you may want to contact them to ask about it.
We love to learn from the educators who use Dropbox. Whether you teach kids, teens, adults or a combination of all three, we want to know what apps and integrations you use with Dropbox to help with teaching. Which of the ones below is your favorite, or most used tool?
