Can we have an option to delete multiple shared links in one go?

Can we have an option to delete multiple shared links in one go?

Explorer | Level 3

There is no option to remove many shared links at a one time. I found same question from 2015:

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-files-folders/remove-all-shared-links/m-p/75611#M87343


This was 5 years ago. And still no option. Really? My team has about 500 links? maybe 1000? I dont now. I dont want to count it. I want to delete links from specified projects, or all links oldest than 1 year for example. Delete all links through script as a solution in previous thread is no option for us. We need to keep a lot of newest created links. But i dont have hours to delete out of date link one by one.

Is it problem to implemet checkbox to select multiple links?

Hello Dropbox, I would like to request a feature for your website. Under the 'Shared' section of the Dropbox website, I have thousands of screenshot 'links' but can’t find a way to remove all these screenshot links at once. I know how to delete the single files but there is literally thousands of linked screenshots from now all the way back to 2014 that would take me days to delete each individually, could I request that you add section boxes with a "select all" function to delete multiple links at once? I have now disabled the 'Share screenshots using Dropbox: Get a link instantly so you can share screenshots in a snap' on my computer but want to clear the screenshot Links in 'Shared' so I can see other items that have a sharing link. Please could you consider this feature for future release and let me know if you add it to the Dropbox website as it would be much appreciated.

We have the same issue in my firm. Would be very useful to have both the ability to delete links enmasse as an administrator, but also to enforce a link expiration for all links. i.e. someone creates a link, and it automatically expires in three months rather than never, unless they manually go in and change it to forever.

This would be of great benefit for us also, as well as gibbon22's suggestion above.  Being able to have a global setting for all links to expire after X number of days, rather than having to manually do that on every single link would save us oodles and oodles of time.

Enable admins and users to batch delete external shared links.   We review shared links every quarter and with hundreds to thousands of external links this process is incredibly inefficient and time-consuming .... it takes 3-clicks to remove each link.
