How can others upload to my account directly?

Explorer | Level 4

I want to allow a third party to upload a file once a month. 

Does this person need to be a member?

Can I give a link to the folder? Is that all I'd need to do?

Would the 3rd party be able to see everything in this folder?

Should I make a folder just for this person to upload to it 1x per month?

Hey there @DawgMob  - how are you today?

In this case, all you'd need to do for others to upload files to your account directly (even without an Dropbox account) is open up a file request (all they'd need is a valid and useable email address).

Let me know if this helped!

Is it possible to automate this?

In other words, do I need to manually do a file request every month or can they use the same file request link?

Automate it how exactly @DawgMob ? 

I guess it's not needed after all as your file requests will remain open for as long as you want. Others will be able to upload to your account through the same link (file request).

If, by any chance, you'd like to change your file request once it's created, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click Files.
  3. Click File requests.
  4. Click the  (ellipsis) icon.
  5. Click Edit.
  6. You can edit both What are you requesting? and Where should these files go in your Dropbox?
  7. Click Save.

Let me know if you have any more questions!
