Allow Others to Upload Files to Your OneDrive with File Request Pro

You work with others every day: in-house personnel, outside contractors, partner companies, or clients. This makes receiving information or files in a simple way a key aspect of your workflow.

OneDrive is a pretty great service. For specific uses, it’s even better than Dropbox.

File Request Pro allows anyone to add files to your OneDrive storage. You can receive files from anyone, regardless of whether they have a OneDrive account themselves. All your colleagues need to do is drop the files in your File Request Pro page or form. You don’t need to send invites, and there are no authorizations, no mess, and no fuss.

Once it’s set up, you can create an upload page or form to embed on your website. All files are automatically uploaded into your OneDrive account.

Use File Request Pro to collect and receive files from anyone, right in your OneDrive account.  With file requests:

    • Anyone can send you a file, whether they have a OneDrive account or not

    • All the files you collect are automatically organized into a single OneDrive folder

    • People who upload files to your file request cannot access your Drive. Only you can view files uploaded by others unless you decide to share them

    • You can customize your file request page theme with your logo, text, and colors, presenting a professional image to your customers

      Receive Files in OneDrive with File Request Pro

One option to allow others to upload files to OneDrive is to create a file upload form in which your clients can drop the files you need. You get the best of both worlds. You get access to the documents you need, and your customers receive a seamless experience. There are no required sign ins, just a simple interface. Plus, you can still use OneDrive to manage your files.

Before diving into the implementation, take a look at this sample form.



When you submit the form, it creates a new folder in OneDrive and uploads the file in that folder. This is a public form, and the best part is that you don’t even need to have a Microsoft account to upload files. Not to mention, the form also works on mobile devices.
