How to set the expiration date for my flipbook’s link?

As you already know, you can share all your flipbooks easily on the web thanks to multiple sharing options available at Publuu. One of them is sharing via a direct link – you can send it to your client and then monitor his activity.

But in some cases, you want a link to your flipbook to be active for a certain amount of time and then expire automatically.

We have good news – it is possible at Publuu!

To learn how to make your flipbook’s link expire on a certain date read the following instruction.


To set the expiration date for your flipbook’s link you have to employ the tracking links function available only in Optimum, Premium and Professional plans. If you are a Basic plan user, upgrade your subscription first to use this function.

The first thing you need to do is to log in to your account and generate a tracking link to your publication. To do so, click the TRACKING LINKS option in the flipbook’s control panel,

tracking link tab

and when it expands, press the GENERATE LINK button below.

First, enter the link’s name, since this field cannot be left empty. It can be your client’s name, company’s name, etc. – it’s up to you.

Under the NAME bar, you’ll see a few options – and this is exactly what we should focus on.

You can set the expiry date for your link just by clicking the SELECT A DATE to open the calendar and setting the deadline for this link.


You can also set the link’s expiration time – click the SELECT A TIME tab and type the time.


Another option that can be activated in the pop-up is the email notifications. To learn more about it, please check this guide: How to Set Up Flipbook’s Viewing Notifications?

Now just copy the link and share it with your client. You can be certain that it will expire on the selected date.
