Preview Only Option For Shared Folder Links

Preview Only Option For Shared Folder Links

Currently, we have the ability to share a link to a file and remove the download option.  With the right security settings, this make the link "Preview/View Only".  However, if we want to share a folder of files using these options, we have to create a separate link for each file.  It would be helpful if we could remove the "download" option when sharing folder links as well.

Hello,

You are absolutely right. The preview mode is not available on the share link for folders. I will pass on your feedback to the product team to be considered for future enhancement. 

Thanks

Dropbox recently launched this feature and it is critical.

Really need this option. We have cross-department teams that work with the same resources but some departments should only be able to view and not download the content.

We are considering this but want to make sure that we can provide a high-performance solution.  Today preview-only generation does take a while in Egnyte and for file links we can do this upfront, but folder links could contain millions of files so it would need to be done on demand.  We're researching approaches and hope to add this feature in the future.
