Automating file creation with templates. Any ideas?

New member | Level 2

Part of my duties include creation of new files, duh!  The caveat is that I spend a great deal of time doing this, but it is repetitve.  I was hoping to determine if this is possible.

Hey there @lmarks  - how are you today?

Unfortunately, there's currently no way to automate the process of creating files with Dropbox - you might want to search the internet for a 3rd party software that is designed for that purpose.

I'll also pass your interest in this functionality to our dev team for their consideration - thanks for the feedback!

Should you have any more questions, please let me know!
