Request external files into SharePoint document libraries

Now we have extended the same capability for SharePoint - specifically requesting file into document libraries. A file request can start from a link in your email signature, a link in a chat, a hyperlink that is a part of your intake or onboarding processes with customers, clients, and vendors. To start, you simply select a folder you want the recipient to place documents into and click Request Files. The recipient clicks on the link, picks her or his files, and uploads - only able to see the files they upload. The original requestor will get an email when new files are added - seeing the new files with the name of the person who uploaded them. Once guest sharing is enabled, site owners and members can select a folder to request files into - after which you can send a unique link or email direct from the SharePoint user interface. What a recipient sees when they click on a request files link - a web page with a simple browse and upload experience; no access or visibility to anything else in the sender's SharePoint environment. Admins can use the SharePoint Online Management Shell to disable or enable the Request Files feature on OneDrive or SharePoint sites. -------------------- Read more at Source: Microsoft Tech Community SharePoint Blog
