To exclude files from the media library display you must create a pre_get_posts() filter the removes them from the list.
I don’t remember all of the details of doing this,, but it will require having some way to determine that the files were uploaded through the specific form. Possibly by creating a custom field for files that is set.
Thank you very much John. This pointed me in the right direction.
For anyone wondering, I ended up adding a meta field to the newly created attachment from the upload using update_post_meta after form submission.
And then pre-filtered the posts query on the upload.php and admin-ajax.php (both media library access points) for attachments without the meta field using pre_get_posts().
Thank you! 🙂
