Can mobile app be update to allow it to select a specific folder to save to for each device?

It would be great if the app could be updated to allow a specific folder to be chosen for each device to save their pictures to. in my case I have two sons that I want to put this app on their phone, but I don't want their pictures added to the same folder as mine is that will cause a lot of work to separate them later.

Hey there @chilker - welcome to our Community and thanks for using our camera uploads feature. 

At first, note that sharing an individual account is not recommended as sharing your Dropbox password with others also violates the Dropbox Terms of Service. 

Therefore, I'd suggest having your sons create their own accounts to keep things separate and from there share whatever files/folders you (or your sons) see fit. It may not be optimal but I hope this helps to some extent. 

That being said, I understand your track of thought and I'll make a note of your comments within my internal report with the team - thanks for you input on this!

If there's anything else you'd like to add or even ask, please let me know; I'll be happy to follow up.
