Can I Set Default iCloud Sharing Permissions ...?

I’m doing a lot of iCloud Drive sharing lately, and so far I’m generally liking it. The only real challenge I’m facing is that it’s a lot of futzing around for a share via email.

With Dropbox, I could right-click and get the Dropbox link. Easy peasy.

With iCloud, I have to right-click, go to Sharing, pick “Add People”, pick the “Copy Link” option, then adjust the permissions to “Anybody with the link” and “View only” to mirror the Dropbox behavior.

I realize that it probably won’t be possible to automate the whole thing, but can I set those last two things - the permissions - to different default values somehow?
