Updated on:

From the Services Settings page, Organization Administrators can update the default download settings for mp3 files and set permissions for who can allow individual file downloads.

This article contains information on allowing MP3 file downloads. Permissions can also be set for which types of users can download files:

  • For all people in the Services account, Organization Administrators can update the Permissions Settings on the People page.
  • For individual users, Scheduler permissions and higher can update file access from a person's profile.

Change Default Settings

From the main Plans page, click the gear icon, and then select Services Settings.

Only Organization Administrators have access to the Settings page.

Update the download settings from the Services Settings File section.

Change Download or Download Permission settings.
  1. If this is set to False, audio files can be streamed, but only people with permissions set in the next field can download them.
  2. People with permission to download audio files can change an individual song setting to allow it to be downloaded, even if the default is only streaming.

Changes to download defaults will only affect files that are added after the update. Previously added files won't be affected.
