Looking for Help to Create Drafts App Action

Greetings, I’ve tried to write an action in the Drafts App that will add the text I create in Drafts to be added to an existing text file I have stored in Dropbox. I tried for about an hour and can’t seem to figure it out. Not sure if anyone out there can help. Damn, I wish I was a programmer!

Here’s what I want to do:

Create text in Drafts App -> add that text to the beginning of an existing file (prepend?) stored in a Dropbox folder (Dropbox-TextNotes-[file name]) then archive the text created in Drafts.

I have been able to create an action that makes a separate/new file within the specified folder but can’t seem to figure out how to add text to an existing file.

Can Drafts do what I’m looking for? What am I missing?


You could adapt this action, perhaps:

Append to Dropbox Journal

Thanks! I think I’m doing something wrong because the action is still creating a new file – it is not adding to it existing file.

I got it to work. Thanks!
