Blind Folder for Uploads only?

Blind Folder for Uploads only?

Hello

 

Newbie here!

 

Question: is there a way to set up a folder in my dropbox account that will act as a blind drop?  I want to give people an address (or link) to a place where they can upload files but can only see their own uploads (or even better can't see anything in the folder).  Is this even possible?

Thank you Mark

 

I did see that, but I don't think that method is what my client is looking for as it involved a direct request via email.  Rather, they are after (I guess) the dropbox version of a blind FTP server.  Where they can share the address on (for example) a website and anyone can upload files. Or, we can collect files through a web form and send them to a folder behind the scenes (or similar)... or does file request work like that too?
