Shared Links default expiration date

Shared Links default expiration date

PedroSousa
New member | Level 2

Hello.

I'm familiar with creating links for sharing and setting an expiration date.

Is it possible to preset an expiration date, instead of always having to set it manually?

That would be a cool and usefull feature.

 

Plus, at some point I remember being possible to erase all generated links at once. Isn't that option available anymore? Do I have to delete them one by one?

 

Thank for your help.

Pedro

Hi @PedroSousa

Theres no way of setting a default expiration I'm afraid and annoyingly theres never been a way to clear all shared links in one go - batch deletion is much needed many (including me!) would agree!

Geez. Dropbox you need to do create this. Defaulting the link open forever is a huge securty risk. Manually changing link exparation is pain, exspcially via mobile so most are active forever... Not good.

Hi, 

I'm planning to upgrade my Plan to Plus but was just concerned about links getting expired. As mentioned Basic and Plus plan we can't set an expiration date but then what is the period of links getting expired after sharing them once?

Links don't expire. A link will become invalid if you remove the link or delete the file.

Who's talking
