Can I create a folder that others can only upload to?

Explorer | Level 3

Is there a way to create one generic folder that will allow my clients to upload their personal documents without others being able to see the contents?

For example, I'd like to have one shared folder that I can use to gather documents from ALL of my clients, but I don't want clients seeing each other documents.

So basically I'm looking for one folder that has upload rights but no viewing or download rights. Is this possible?

This is great! Do you know if there is a way to change the photo on the landing page when people use the link to upload files?
