Bulk delete shared links

Bulk delete shared links

I just found that deleting all the shared links that accumulate over time isn't that easy. In fact, I have to click on each one's ellipsis and then click again on "Delete". Imagine the fun I had for all those files and folders.

May I suggest Dropbox made more use of the concept called "Checkbox", which is widely used in other parts of it's UI.

Hi there @m-go, thanks for checking in with us!

Although there isn't currently a direct option for you to remove all shared links with one click, you can check out this thread where users have suggested a few workarounds. 

You can also post your idea here where like-minded users can share their interest and upvote. 

Hope this helps!

Thanks, Lusil.

It's funny the "accepted solution" is still a two years old JS hack created by a user.

See, that would be OK if Dropbox was the friendly team of hackers from the garage next door. No offense to the support team, but I think it's a little embarassing for a 8bn company.

"It's funny that..."...no it is not funny at all, it's unbelievable.

 

Still, as per the previous post, why is this hack even necessary???

Are there so few developers in Dropbox that there is no-one to put a "Check All" checkbox??

Are they all so busy inventing new collaborative features that no-one is asking for??

 

I note that in the referenced thread, the jquery version worked, but not the pure javascript version posted later, as the ids and classes appear to have changed in the page.
