Tip:  To stop someone from editing your notebook, but still let them view it, change their permissions from Can edit to Can view.

Disable a sharing link

If you shared your notebook using a link, you can stop the link from working so people can’t view or edit your notebook. After you disable the link, people who click it will get a message telling them that the link might have been deleted or expired, or they might not have permission to view it.

  1. Click File > Share > Get a Sharing Link.

  2. Next to View Link or Edit Link, click Disable Link.

Note:  If you see a Create Link button and no link, you haven’t created a link to your notebook, or you’ve already disabled it.
