We recive 100's of emails containing a dropbox share link in the email body. We have written an applicatoin to open the email and extract the Dropbox link. Is there any way to use the Dropbox API to automate the process of downloading the documents from the link to our own dropbox account? Could we download them to a hard drive and then re-upload them to Dropbox?
We really do not want to write a web scraping app to download all these files!
Note that this only works if the shared link is for a file, not a whole folder. If you need to download specific files from a shared link for a folder (or the whole folder), you'll need to do so individually using /2/sharing/get_shared_link_file:
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?
