Notes

Filename
Mozenda publishes files to Dropbox using the following convention: [agent name]–[view]–[Date: yyyy-MM-dd]

Overwriting files
If the same agent publishes to Dropbox multiple times on the same day, it will overwrite the previously published data for that day, resulting in only one file (per day) from that agent in Dropbox. You can access all of the data in the Dropbox under the file's history.
