Allow editing By checking this box, people with Edit permissions can copy, move, edit, rename, share, and delete anything in the folder they have access to (This is turned on by default unless you uncheck it). 

Block download prevents people from downloading the file or folders they have access to. Unchecking this box means that people can download the files onto their devices.

Set expiration date After the date you set, the link won't work anymore, and you will need to create a new link for users requiring access to your file or folder.

Set password When a user clicks the link, they will be prompted to enter a password before they can access the file. 

Open in review mode only limits people to leaving comments and making suggestions on the file.

Once you have set all your link settings and permissions, select Apply.
