How to share content as write Only (not read) where people can upload content into a shared folder?

How to share content as write Only (not read) where people can upload content into a shared folder?

Hello,

 

I'm hoping to set up a shared folder that allows write, but not read access.

 

Brief background: I want to collect photos from a large group of people. While everyone should be able to upload theirs to the shared folder, they shouldn't be able to see anything that'd been uploaded (including their own). Basically, a drop box where you drop files but once they're in, you can't see them anymore. I know this is an option in MacOS (where it is literally called 'Write only (Drop Box)') and I'm wondering if Dropbox sharing offers a similar feature.

 

Happy to upgrade if that's what's needed to make this work.

 

Thanks everyone!

The feature you're looking for is called a file request.
