        They don't always have these updated and then all the sudden it will release, or what not. I'm betting it's being worked on already and we'll see it at this SharePoint conference. Just a guess thou :P.

        Yeah but that's not really the same thing. Drop box lets you send a link and accept uploads from multiple people without them seeing what others have uploaded. That's the difference :P.

        All of you paying for Dropbox for no reason......
        You can already easily do this. Go to or quickly create a folder you want to have them upload and Right click Share (Since new shell integration this is easier than ever). Select Anyone can edit the folder, click apply, next step lets you put in e-mail address and send a message, type in "Hey click this link and upload your files". Boom done.....And with Microsoft Flow you could technically build this functionality out as well if you use it all the time....... sure it's not a single button click, but it doesn't take much time to just do the folder Share.

        @Dan, yea that's all it is, is setting permissions on a folder that has a link to get to access, there isn't a mechnism in place to allow people to just randomly send files in.

        @William you don't have to log in, hence why he said the "Get a link" feature. This is an anonymous link that does NOT require a login. They click the link. Upload the file(s) to the folder and boom let you know it's done. (Notifications for this are planned). So essentially this is done. They could probably make a button that does this all in one step I suppose very easily but the functionality definatley is there and has been added recently in the past month or two.

          Expand the move button to more than just existing site. Copy can cross sites, if we could use move, and then input our own URL at a minimum that would be ideal.

            Because you have those options turned on your library, you need to turn off required metadata column or the force checkout option on your library and you will be able to sync normally.

              We use a client desktop backup tool to bridge this gap, but it would be nice to have a dashboard so we can get rid of the need for this backup tool. It's expensive to cover the "Broken sync" client scenario. Not end of world since another layer of protection is always good, but would be nice to have one less product to maintain.

                    Yes definitely need a holistic view to be proactive about those pesky "users".....job security right?

                        Def important feature for our service. This one is behind making shared folders sync, but on the roadmap for sure.
