OneDrive for Business users are now able to share a link to Office documents that blocks recipients from downloading copies but still allows them to view the document in Office Online.
Users can create links that block download by using the common Sharing experience that exists across Office 365. By going into Link Settings they’ll be able to toggle the “block download” option for view-only links.
We’ve completed rollout for “anyone” and “people in my organization” links, and are working on enabling it for the remaining link types. “Specific people” links are enabled on web endpoints and we’re working on native clients.
We are working on bringing this same capability to other file types.Dimitar Mitev commented
The option does not work on pdf files, the download checkbox is not available for these file type. Are you working on compatibility for the same?Dimitar Mitev supported this idea ·
