File request feature
I am looking for file request feature like dropbox. where even unregistered users can upload their files. Basically i want that feature so that my clients can upload their files which range from 2gb to 6gb at times. Where anyone having link can upload their files. I am thinking of buying outlook for business. But there is no meaning of buying it if i cannot do that.

Regarding patent, AnyTask has this feature also. Unfortunate that MS has been SO slow to adapt to cloud computing. More missed opportunities.
As a teacher using Office 365, this would be a LIFE SAVER. Having my students upload their assignments to OneNote only works if they all hand it in on time (if they hand it in late, I need to be manually checking their sections since there is no notification). I have used Dropbox's File Requests in the past, and it works very well, but I have far more space in Office 365 than DB. Would love to see this feature added. Thank you.
I am an extensive OneDrive user. Unfortunately, it has not been able to keep up with my demand. As a result, before giving up on it, I reset everything and turned on Files On-Demand. Other than the fact that it has been processing this request now for over 24 hours, my very serious issue is that the files which I selected to "Always keep on this device" still aren't there. Can you please modify your algorithm to push these files to the top of the queue? As a distant second request, if it's going to take multiple days to synchronize a few GB, can you give a more detailed status? When I check, all I see is a random number of changes being processed. Thank you
We are using FileRequestPro.com to receive files from customers in our OneDrive folder. We create a file request links, no need for our customers to create an account in OneDrive.
Very similar to how dropbox works.
Would be great to have this bundle into OneDrive

Rohde, I'm curious why companies like sharefile seem to be able to do this. Maybe they are paying for the right to use the dropbox patent?
Dropbox has patented this US20160308881A1 - so you won't see it on any other platform anytime soon.
