Dropbox doesn't offer actual templating for files/folders, but you can use /2/files/copy_v2 to make copies of any file or folder.

 

Likewise, you can move items, e.g., from a shared folder to a team folder, or whatever you need, using /2/files/move_v2.

 

By the way, those are links to the documentation for the HTTPS endpoints themselves, but we recommend using one of the official SDKs if possible. Those have corresponding native methods for the HTTPS endpoints.
