Hi @Googlebucks, I'd be happy to answer this for you! 

You can absolutely do that by using File Requests. 

Once you create your request, you can copy the link and send it to your users via email or even sms if you wish. 

These are the steps. 

If you have any other questions, I'm here.

That information was useless. From the first step it doesn’t work.

I need to request a file

I want to request a non user send me a video file, preferably by sending them a text. Can’t figure out how. All on mobile.

You can use Dropbox Requests for this, however, it is set up via the Dropbox website

Would you mind telling me what problem you're facing when you're following the steps to create a file request?
