Before you decide to publish a new theme for your store, you might want to seek some feedback from others. By creating a share link, you can share the access of a preview of the theme that you’ve added to your Shopify admin page, and they can send you some feedback to help you make the right decision. This link remains active for 14 days. After 14 days, you can create new links without affecting your old one.
