Turning off Link Sharing

Link sharing can be turned off from the same "Share" dialog as it is turned on. When turned off, the secret links will no longer allow access to the project.

Link Sharing and Track Changes

When link sharing is turned on, the Review panel will show an option to enable track changes for Guests which are accessing the project via shared links. Users accessing the project using an edit link will have access to the Review pane and Track Changes. Anyone accessing the project using a read-only link will not be able to access the project's Review pane or view Tracked Changes. This includes access to any review comments in the project.
