Set a file to "expire"

Set a file to "expire"

We sometimes share meeting screen recording files on DB, so the whole team can review them.  But these large files generally have very low value after a certain period of time.  So I am wondering if there is a way that a file can be set up with an expiry date, such that the owner receives notification on that date to review the file and decide if it should be removed or left in place.

 

I know that share links can be set up so that they expire after a certain period of time.  I am looking for similar functionality for files, themselves.  

 

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi @Structuraldood, thanks for posting today!

Currently, there isn't a feature like this on the Dropbox site or a workaround to make it work the way you want.

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
