Why export Dropbox to BigQuery
Make a backup copy
Back up your CSV and Excel files stored on Dropbox by transferring data into BigQuery. Use a Dropbox - BigQuery integration that will automatically extract, transform, and load records to the chosen dataset. Configure the ETL pipeline without any coding skills and with just a few clicks by setting up the source, destination, and schedule. Enable the automatic data refresh to make your backup copy self-updating every day or at another frequency.
Organize data from multiple sources in one repository
Load data from Dropbox to BigQuery, where you can blend it with the records imported from CRM software, accounting tools, and other sources. Use BigQuery as a repository for your information that you can extract from different sources using Coupler.io and other tools. Configure the automatic data refresh to ensure that your repository contains up-to-date records without any manual effort.
Analyze and investigate your data
Load your data from Dropbox files to BigQuery for advanced analytics that allow you to get decision-making insights. Run interactive and batch queries to analyze large datasets, execute machine learning models, and build rich dashboards. With the imported data, you can use BigQuery as a data source to connect to powerful data visualization tools, such as Google Data Studio.
What data you can load with Dropbox BigQuery integration
Convert the raw data from your CSV files to BigQuery tables. Each Dropbox - BigQuery integration allows you to export one CSV file to BigQuery. Configure as many integrations as the number of CSV files stored in your Dropbox folder. Schedule a set of data to BigQuery on a custom schedule that you want.
Connect worksheets from Excel files stored on Dropbox to your BigQuery dataset. You can import each sheet of your XLSX file to separate tables or merge multiple sheets into one table. To export an entire Excel file, you’ll need to set up as many integrations as the number of tabs in the file.

With Coupler.io, you can automate data replication from Dropbox to BigQuery every hour with a few clicks. Select and configure the source CSV or Excel file on Dropbox and connect the BigQuery project to where you’re going to load data to. Enable automatic data refresh and choose Every Hour as the Interval for updates. The integration will automatically import data from Dropbox to BigQuery every hour.
Coupler.io allows you to connect multiple projects for your account. This means that you can set up separate Dropbox to BigQuery integrations for different BigQuery projects. For example, project X will only be integrated with the CSV files stored on Dropbox, and project Y will host the data from the Dropbox Excel files.
