Limit how many files are others uploading to my file requests

Can I set a limit to the number of files a single person is allowed to upoad? I want to creat a folder, and sent a request to upload to a large group, but I want to limit each person to two files (photos, e.g.).

Welcome to our Community and thanks for using Dropbox and our File Requests feature @MaryB1505!

Adjusting the limit of the files that submitters can upload to File Requests isn't an option at the moment but I'll be happy to pass this on as a feature request. I won't be able to comment on if or when this is going to be implemented though.

If you have anything to add or ask in the meantime, please let me know Mary!

PS: I've moved your post under the 'Share an Idea' section of our Community so other users can find and upvote it too!

Thank you for the answer. It would be a good feature to add, but I'll deal with it via my invitations.

This idea is going to need a bit more support.

We've updated the status to encourage more users to back you up!

This feature should not need "more support". I also back this idea up and would love to see it implemented. For some purposes, we need a specific number of files, so maybe set options of a limit to number of files (no more than) OR a specific number of files per request folder (no more or less - just the correct number) .... . I'll be needing to pay for space soon, but without this control on file requests it is really going to restrict my purpose :(
