Setting expiration dates on files is a good method when file usage should be limited due to copyright or Digital Rights Management (DRM) reasons.
Set Expiration date on a file
Select a file to view its information in the Sidebar.
Clicking the Expiration field will open a calendar. You can select an expiration date for the file on the calendar itself, or type the date into the field.
Find expired files
Once the expiration date passes, the file’s status will change to Expired, and a small red clock icon will be visible just before the file name.
Set Expiration date on multiple files
Using keyboard shortcuts, you can select multiple files.
To select multiple consecutive files:
- Select the first item.
- Press and hold Shift.
- Click the last item.
To select multiple non-consecutive files:
- Press and hold Ctrl (control on Windows) or ⌘ (command on Mac).
- Select all files you want.
Then click the Context menu icon in the sidebar and choose Edit multiple files.
Clicking the Expire field will open a calendar. You can select an expiration date for the file on the calendar itself, or type the date into the field. Click Update files to save the changes.
