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.
