Shared folder not updating with new photos added past when the link is created

Shared folder not updating with new photos added past when the link is created

Hi!
I have a folder that I upload photos to regularly and I will occasionally share this folder with other people by using the share link. The problem is that, after I send someone the link, if I add more photos to the folder, the person with the link I shared can’t see any of the new stuff that’s been added. They can only see what was in the folder at the time I sent them the link. How do I make it so that the folder updates with new photos for anyone that I send the link to?

Hi @UpsetBlackberry 

 

You cannot I'm afraid is the simple answer. This is because there is no link, at all, between you/the other person with shared links. If you want them to get updates they EITHER need to revisit the link or you need to set up a Shared Folder with them instead but being aware that means they could have edit rights and WILL need enough quota to add it in to their account.
