2. Click your avatar (profile picture or initials) in the top-right corner.
3. Click Settings.
4. Click the Branding tab.

Use file requests to collect and receive files (up to 50 GB) from anyone, right in your Dropbox account. When someone clicks your file request link, all they have to do is choose files from their computer, enter their name and email, and click Upload. That’s it—there’s no need to sign in, so anyone can add files, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. It’s an easy way to get files—like proposals from vendors—without having to walk people through the process.
All the files you collect are automatically organized into a single Dropbox folder. Only you can view files uploaded by others, unless you decide to share them.
1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
2. Click File requests in the left sidebar.
3. Click New request in the right sidebar.
4. Under Title, enter a name for your request.
5. Under Description, add details about the request, if you like.
6. Under Folder for uploaded files, you'll see the path to a new folder for your requested files. If you'd like to change the destination, click Change folder.
7. Click the check box next to Set deadline to choose a date and time. You can also Allow late uploads and choose a timeframe.
8. Click Create.
9. Type the email, name, or group of the person (or people) you’d like to request files from. They’ll receive an email about your request.
- To copy a link instead, click Copy next to Share a link instead. You can paste the link into an email, message, or wherever you’d like people to access it.
10. Click Share. You’ll receive an email confirmation, and an email notification when files are uploaded to your file request.
