You can also specify text to appear above the list of files and get e-mails for link activity if desired.
As the last step, click the "Generate" button to generate a link with the settings you specified.

Settings changed after the link is generated will not take effect unless "Generate" is clicked again to generate a new link. Be sure to delete any links which are no longer needed.
You can use the "View links" button to view existing links and delete them.
