Require Name when uploading Documents

We have clients upload documents to us in one main folder. It gets confusing when they are all posted by anonymous, How do we require them to enter their name before uploading documents, so that we can see who the creator is for each file?

Hi Nicole,

Are you using the API to create the Request Share? If so, the payload

{
  "ShareType":"Request",
  "Title":"Sample Request Share",
  "Recipients":[ { "User": { "Id":"userid" } }, { "User": { "Email": "user@email" } } ],
  "Parent": { "Id":"folderid" },
  "ExpirationDate": "2013-07-23",
  "RequireLogin": false,
  "RequireUserInfo": false,
  "TrackUntilDate": "2013-07-23",
  "SendFrequency": -1,
  "SendInterval": -1
}

has the field RequireLogin, which you send in as true. This will require user's to login prior to uploading to the Share.

What is API? This seems way more complicated than it should be for the web version.

Sorry, I think I posted this issue incorrectly. Reposting for just web version.

Ok, you're just talking about using web app. This post was done under the API and SDK's sections, so I thought you may be programmatically generating the share upload via the API.

From the web app, When you select "Request Files", if you select "Request With ShareFile", rather than Get a link, when you select message options you can check the checkbox to require login.
