SendDropboxLink

This operation is similar to the SendItemsElink operation. This produces a web URL that anyone, even non-members, can use to upload files to a designated folder in a user account. An email is sent by the system containing an encrypted web link, which when activated by recipients, will prompt them to Upload any files to the specified folder, according to the parameters (options) given when calling the function. If the 'RecipientsEmailAddresses' element is equal to the value 'GENERALLINK', the function will return the Dropbox URL Link without sending an email. This link can be used directly from any location, and the link behaves exactly like the way it does when sent in an email.
