Is there a way to restrict the viewing of attachment but still allow users to upload?

We would like to set up a wiki space to allow users that have access to that space to post attachments to pages but not see the list of attachments or restrict it where they can only see their attachment.

Example: We set up space for the vendor community respond to solicitation requests. Each vendor would have a wiki log on with the proper restrictions to only view this space. The customer would post a solicitation on a page with the requirements and would request vendors to respond to the request via uploading their response to the page. The customer does not want vendors to see the other responses and only the customer could see all responses (attachments).

Is there a way to do this?

Unless each user had their own page to attach their attachments no. If they do have their own page you would only need to apply viewing restrictions to that page for all individuals who should be able to see the attachments and/or content. If required, you can create an index of all attachments in the space with the Space Attachments macro or by going to BROWSE > ATTACHMENTS.

Thanks for the info. I will just lock down pages where they can post their attachments.
