Is it possible to automate folder creation for my Dropbox team account?

Is it possible to automate folder creation for my Dropbox team account?

Explorer | Level 4

How do I set up automation to allow the automatic creation of folders in Dropbox? I would like to trigger an event on creation of a folder so that when a user creates a new folder - 6 pretitled folders appear within it.

What is teh best way to do this from within Dropbox?

Hey @Sam242, as you mentioned that you’d like to establish an automated workflow for the folder creation, can you please clarify whether you’re using the Dropbox API? Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have the same question on how to automate folder and nested subfolder creation? This would be within the normal functionality of dropbox?

Hi @JohnSmith118; thanks for joining our Community and apologies for the late response here.

 

As you might have found out by now, there is no way to automate the creation of folder structures with Dropbox directly. 

 

You can suggest this idea in the relevant section of the Community so other similar minded users can upvote it to show their interest and/or share their own thoughts on this as well. 

 

Let us know if you have any follow up questions.
