Sharing a Collection needs to have option to "Enable Downloads" as a default

This simple thing slows my workflow: whenever sharing a Collection I need to enable downloads manually. Currently sharing defaults to not enabled.

I can't enable downloads from the desktop app. I need to go to Lightroom Web via a web browser. That's silly.

Steps I need to do, currently:
  1. click Make Public button
  2. wait until Generating URL disappears
  3. click second mouse button on the Collection name on the left sidebar for contextual menu to show up
  4. hover over Lightroom mobile Links
  5. click Private Link: View on Web to be taken to a web browser
  6. click Shared button
  7. click Share Settings on Share Options pop-up dialog window
  8. click Allow downloads
Why it has to be so difficult? Eight steps, for something that should require only one step:
  1. click "Make Public" button
Boom. Job done.

When making this several times a day it starts to annoy so much. A user should be able to set his preference.

Using Lightroom CC 2015.14 on macOS 10.12.6.
