Easily Create Multiple Folders as the same Time

Easily Create Multiple Folders as the same Time

Helpful | Level 6

Create multiple folders together, separating folders with a comma. 

Currently, you can create subfolder together by typing the folder names, for example: 

Parent/Child/Grandchild, which will create a folder named 'Parent', a second folder inside of it named 'Child', and a third subfolder inside that named 'Grandchild'. 

Can this feature be expanded so that if a comma is used instead of a forward slash, it should create an additional (non sub) folder? 

For example if you select 'create new folder', then type Green, Blue, Yellow, it will create 3 separate folders (not inside of each other)? Will save a lot of time considering the delay of Dropbox when actually executing the 'create new folder' request.

Yes, this would be amazing for adding/organizing media files in my folder system, because I'm mostly copying/moving/extracting/... files in batches.

Wow this would be so useful, here I was trying to figure out the API to make a data hierarchy that I could just paste into any new folder for a new client. I have found that if I put anything, even just a .txt in a folder set up then dropbox will take the folder structure, but it does not always work?

If the folders are just empty it doesn't copy the structure, maybe an easy way to do this would just be to make the drag and drop feature also copy/paste folder structure even when empty?
