  • New feature in O365: Sharing links that block download

    Posted by Patti Wenglikowski on 12/10/2018

    Link Settings with Block download selected Do you have files with information that you want to share with others, but do not want them to download their own copy of the file? Office 365 has just released a new feature that blocks downloads. Using Office Online, users are now able to share a link to an Office document that blocks the recipients from downloading copies but still allows them to view the document in Office Online.

    Users can create links that block download by using the common Sharing experience that exists across Office 365. By going into Link Settings you will be able to toggle the "block download" option for view-only links.
