hi! i am linking a QR code to a dropbox paper document. I want to makesure that this document's URL wont change since it's linked to the QR code for many people to use to access the paper doc. how do i make sure the URL doesnt chance? Whenever I change the name of the paper doc, the url changes and I don't want this to happen.

Hi @pedrocevil4, thanks for messaging today!

 

If you create a QR code, and then rename the doc, then the link would still redirect to the same doc as before.

 

You can test this by creating a test doc and copying the link, opening it in incognito/private browsing while not logged in there. Paste that link in Notepad as well to keep the URL safe.

 

Then, rename the doc on your account, then link dynamically changes in incognito without you having to do anything. Now try pasting the copied version from Notepad in incognito, and the same doc will appear with the new updated link.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
