Dropbox - File requestDropbox - File request

Overview
File requests help Dropbox users collect files from a large number of people. A file request is a public link to a folder that can accept files from anyone – whether they’re a Dropbox user or not. Imagine common use cases such as:
 
  • A freelance web designer collecting assets for a new website from her client
  • A teacher collecting assignments from students
  • Magazine editors collecting submissions from their freelance writers
New improvements
This update includes key changes to the submitter experience, including:
    • A much-improved submission failure experience where individual files fail softly and can easily be retried
    • Description fields so submitters have more confidence in where they’re adding files
    • Supports dragging files from your computer into the uploader interface
    • Visual refresh  making the uploader interface faster and easier to use
    • The ability to upload folders and not just files
Audience
All Dropbox users
