With Walls.io, you can automatically import images from any Dropbox folder onto your Wall. It's easy to achieve this with our Zapier integration. This step-by-step guide explains how it's done.

🚨 Important: This requires access to the Walls.io API, which is only included in our Premium subscription & Large event pass.

1. Sign in to your Dropbox account

To get started, sign in to your Dropbox account if you haven't already.

2. Create a new folder in your Dropbox & upload one image

Create a new folder in your Dropbox (or in a directory, which is synced with your Dropbox) and remember its name. Then, upload one image to that folder.

❗️ Please note: It's necessary to upload just one image for now in order to establish a proper connection between Dropbox & Zapier. Upload additional images only after the Zap has been created!

The supported image formats are:

  • JPEG (*.jpg, *.jpeg, *.jfif)

  • PNG (*.png)

  • GIFs (*.gif)

3. Enable API access for your Wall

Log in to your Walls.io account and go to Settings > API and activate the access token: 👇

4. Sign in to Zapier and Connect Dropbox

In Zapier, start to create your "Zap" by clicking "Make a Zap" (a Zap is kind of a "recipe" that will connect two apps, in our case Dropbox and Walls.io). Enter a name for your Zap, i.e. "Dropbox to Walls.io". Choose Dropbox for the trigger app and "New File in Folder" as the trigger event:👇

Then, choose your Dropbox account and click "Continue". You'll have to "Sign in to Dropbox" if this is your first Zap using Dropbox:👇

5. Choose the Folder to watch for new images

Next, set up the trigger by selecting the folder you've created in step 2 and set "Yes" for "Include file contents":👇

Afterwards, click "Test trigger":👇

and then click "Continue": 👇

6. Choose "Walls.io" for the Action

Next, we're going to set up the Zapier action. Choose Walls.io for the app event and "Create Post" as the Action event:👇

7. Sign in to Walls.io

Afterwards, connect your Walls.io account this way: 👇
Click "Choose an account" and then, click "Connect a new account"

You'll see a new window where you can insert the API access token of your social Wall. Copy the API access token of your Wall from step 3 and paste it into the Access Token field:

9. Set up the Action

Next, set up the Zapier action by adding a name for the User Name field. Make sure to fill out the Image field with File (Exists but not shown). 👇 If you do not want to show the username on your wall, you can always hide it with a custom CSS snippet, which you can find in this article.

Select "True" for "Moderation Status" if you want to set your wall to Automatic Moderation. If you prefer to have Manual Moderation (=approve each post manually before it gets displayed on your social Wall), select "False".

10. Test your Zap and turn it on!

Finally, test your Zap and turn it on:👇
