link sharing for a file thats often updated.

I have an excel file on my computer with the employee schedule on it.  How do I share the link via dropbox so that when I update the excel file weekly the link brings the employee to the updated schedule and not the previous schedule?

Hi @annethoughnee, I hope you're having a good day so far!

When you create a shared link for a file, the link will show the most recent version of the file.

So in this case, you can just send out the shared link and update the file as needed, the recipient will always see the most recent version without you needing to take any action.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi @annethoughnee,

If I have to bet, you question is in context of invalidated file link when the file gets saved. The problem here is that some program don't update existing file, but replace it. This invalidates existing link. A workaround could be don't share the file, but folder containing it. If need, create a desired folder and move there the file. Sharing this folder will solve the issue.

Hope this helps.
