MC495329: External File Request in SharePoint Document Library

With File Request feature in SharePoint Document Library, users have an easy and secure way to request and obtain files from anyone. Users can choose a folder in SharePoint Document Library where others can upload files using a link that is shared with them. Users you request files from can only upload files; they can’t see the content of the folder, edit, delete, or download files, or even see who else has uploaded files.
