Block downloading, view only with an online expiration date.

Explorer | Level 3

I want my customer to view online only. I want to prevent my customer from downloading my PowerPoint presentations. Also I need an expiry date for my customer's access to my online PowerPoint presentations. Can you do this? DennisJF September 06, 2020

Hi @DennisJF; thanks for joining the Community!

 

It sounds like our shared links feature would work for you as, with those, you can disable downloads and/or add an expiry date as well. 

 

For more information on the advanced settings for shared links, please take a look here.

 

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any follow up questions.

Preview Limit of 288mb for PowerPoints is too small

Explorer | Level 3

I would have bought the Professional Edition today for $200 a year if you did not have a 288 mb limit on PowerPoint previews. I have PowerPoints up to 607 mbs due to the inclusion of mp4 videos.  The videos are important teaching tools for domestic violence offenders mandated by the courts in Nevada for group online counseling sessions.

Walter:  The Dropbox solution doesn't work for me because there is a 288mb restriction on PowerPoints.   My PowerPoints are largerr because they contain mp4 video files.  These videos are important since they are helpful in training court mandated domestic violence offenders in 90 minute online sessions.  This is also why they cannot be segmented since the presentation needs to be continuous.  Thank you anyway.
