File Requests - how can I prevent them seeing the files others uploaded into the folder?

Hello. I am a teacher and I sent a file requests to students so they could upload their videos for a talent show. Unfortunately, they are all able to see everyone else's videos. So, that means nobody will show up for the virtual talent show because they will have all watched them. Is there a way to make the file request folder locked so they can't watch other students videos?

If you send a file request then nobody can access that unless you explicitly share it: www.dropbox.com/requests

 

If, however, as I think you actually sent a shared folder then yes, everybody can see it (and also edit each others!).
