Do you mean time-limited links? If so, you can set expirations on share links if you have a Professional or Business account.

Hi Rich

No, I meant links that you can set to expire a set time after they are first opened.

Hey @scottylindner2, thanks for reaching out to us!

Currently, there's no option to set a time limit from the second someone opens a shared link or a shared folder/file. 

However, you can post this idea here where other users who share this interest can upvote and comment! 

Hope this helps to some extent!
