Collecting Large files from others

How do I send folks a folder into which I want them to upload large files (say proposal documents)? I've created the folder.

Re: Collecting Large files from others

Hey there (@kbdussom), you could easily accomplish your task by sending them a File Request 🙏🏼. This way, they’ll be able to contribute in a project or send you the files you need in return. From there, let me quickly note that add I’ve also created this walkthrough, which could be helpful. 
More information
(Additional tip: It would be worth noting that if the file request was created by a Dropbox Basic or Dropbox Plus user, your colleagues will be able to upload files up to 2 GB, whereas if it was created by a Dropbox Professional or Dropbox Business user, they’d be able to upload files up to 20 GB.)
Please do let me know how you get on with my advice or in case you have any follow-up questions & enjoy the rest of your day until we talk again!
