Set a Default Expiration Date for ALL shared links

Set a Default Expiration Date for ALL shared links

Please enable a feature that allows end-users to toggle an automatic expiration date for all shared links, either withing a sub-folder, or for all links.

I am admin for a small Team account (5 TB). 

I know how to go in & toggle an expiration date on an individual file link.

The process is tedious & requires a web interface on Dropbox.com, as it's not accessible from the finder or the Dropbox app.

What I want is to have an expiration date be "On" by default, with a pre-set time limit (7 days, 30 days, 60 days). That was the other team users, if sharing sensitive info, do not have to worry the link will be shared in perpetuity. ALL links would be set to expire. If the recipient needs a new link in the future, they can request the file again.

End-users should be able to decide for themselves if they want to toggle this feature on or off.
