Enable Adhoc Email Link for file downloads without User Login Credentials

This is a business need with most enterprise's we have had conversation.   While we have stressed on the aspect of Security concerns and its impact.  The clients have strongly evinced interest for this capability as the dependency is high on IT and TAT's are a challenge.  The utility should be linked to a timeline based engagement.  Example 1 day, 1 week.... post which the link shared over email expires.

What is your industry? Banking
