Updating an invite link

If the link permissions are updated, all users with the previous link will see the newly updated permission via the same link.

Frequently asked questions

How can I delete an invite link?

Invite links cannot be deleted without deleting the file however you can edit the permission on the link settings to "No access" and anyone with the link previously will be denied access.

What files can I send invite links to?

If the colleague you are sending the link to, does not have a BioRender account, illustration and poster previews are viewable via invite links. However, slide previews will display only the first slide on the preview page. Your colleague must create an account or log in to view the full slide deck.
