Using Dropbox to Deliver Data to Terminus (List-Based Configuration)

Terminus has a Dropbox Business Account, where our team can create a shared folder and share that folder directly with your team. From here, the customer will be able to access the shared folder and upload the necessary files from their system. 

A shared folder in Dropbox is any folder that you’ve invited other people to view or edit—even if they’re outside your team. Anyone with shared folder access can see all the files in that folder, but nothing else outside of that folder. Files in shared folders sync between members’ Dropbox accounts, so each member of a shared folder needs a Dropbox account.

You can leverage an already existing dropbox account or can register for a free Dropbox account here:


  • Dropbox Account
  • Access to the .CSV file to be shared with Terminus
