Dear Experts,

I have created on demand task to import an Excel file from Dropbox, but I want to run this task from a Wordpress page, just like we can deploy Datapage and paste it wo a Wordpress page.  I am trying to use this as a way of uploading a file by non-admin person on demand.
Please advise.

The easiest way to accomplish this is to first create a standalone script, in your language of choice, which will perform the exact + complete download operation.

Then just connect a button in WordPress to run your script, using PHP exec()  + you're done.

You can even rollup this script into a WordPress plugin, if you require running this same operation on many sites.
