Comments Field for File Request

Comments Field for File Request

Please add a "comments" section to the File Request feature.  When someone uploads a file, it would be very helpful if they could add a note to give any details about that file.  Their comments could then be included in the notification email that follows.

Agreed! About to set up file request folders for an upcoming celebration, and need an easy way for people to include details on the photos and videos..!

Yes, this would be hugely helpful for us too. We're working on a project where volunteers would submit photos via File Request, but the metadata (date, time & location a photo was taken) is an important component. Some of that comes along with the photo automatically, but only if it's uploaded from a computer. When people upload images from their phones, that information is stripped away. Having a comment field is one way to work around this issue. It does look like Box has made comment fields available for their file requests, so we may end up having to go with them instead of Dropbox for our project.
