General Preferences allows users to manage their view, upload, and share preferences. These settings are tied to your Runner account and will be loaded whenever you log into Runner, even across different machines and browsers.

Share Preferences

For share preferences, you can set default share permissions, a default expiration interval, and whether you’d like all your shares to be protected or include metadata. For managing your default expiration interval, click the dropdown menu to select when your share will expire. The selections you make here will load as your default settings when sending a share.

Pencil.jpg Note: Additional Share Options for ‘Protected’ and ‘Include Metadata’ are independent of each other therefore, both can be selected.

Cart Preferences

For cart preferences, you can set a preferred cart that allows you to automatically add assets to a specified cart.

Pencil.jpg Note: If you choose to not have a preferred cart, you will manually select a cart every time you wish to add assets to a cart.
