WP E-Signature’s Dropbox Sync Add-on allows you to automatically (and some might say magically) save a PDF copy of your signed documents to your own Dropbox account!
Before we get started I would recommend checking your php level, because Dropbox requires a php version of 5.6.4 or higher. If your php matches this requirement… read on! 🙂

Additional Dropbox Sync info and tips!
Once you have authorized your Dropbox Sync add-on, every document you create will automatically have the “Sync PDF to Dropbox once document is signed by everyone” option pre-checked.
You do have the option to un-check this setting before sending the document our for signature. You can find this option under your Advanced Document options.
After your documents are signed by all parties, the signed PDF is automatically sent to a folder in your Dropbox account. You can find your documents under Files —> Apps —> WP E-Signature Sync.
And there you have it! A quick, easy way to automatically save your signed PDF’s to a Dropbox account!
