Setup

Hightouch will prompt you to authorize with your Dropbox account:

After authorizing, you will have successfully connected Hightouch to Dropbox.

Syncing

Sync modes

Hightouch lets you select the folder path to where the file will be synced to.

  • All - All Mode creates a CSV file with all the rows in the query results, every time the sync is run.
  • Insert - Insert mode creates a CSV file with the rows that were added since the last sync.

File name

The file name field will allow you to specify the prefix and the name of the file that you want to use for your results. In the screenshot below, we've specified that we want the file to be called results.csv, with a custom prefix.

You can also timestamp variables in the file name, surrounding each with {}. We support these timestamp variables: YYYY, MM, DD, HH, mm. All dates and times will be UTC.

For example: upload/{YYYY}-{MM}-{DD}-{HH}-{mm}-result.csv.

Columns to sync

For this destination, we give you the ability to export all columns as they are represented in your model.

If you need to remap the fields that you're exporting, maybe because you don't want to alter your model, you can manually map fields. Only the fields that you map will be exported in this instance. In this example, we're exporting company, email, name, and primaryKey. These fields are mapped to new fields in the CSV, and all other columns from your results are ignored.

CSV header

We provide you the option to include a CSV header with your exported results.

Other considerations

If a file at that path already exists at the time of a sync, Hightouch will overwrite it. To view different versions of the same file, you can right-click the file in Dropbox. Click Activity and then Version history.

This destination will not respect any sorting that you have in your model. It will export results file sorted by ID.
