Did Not Receive an Email Notification that a Document Had Been Shared

Brass Contributor
I shared a OneDrive for Business document with a user in my organization via the "people you choose" sharing link. I then asked that user to share the document with someone else.

What I was expecting to happen was:

  1. they would be able to share the document, and
  2. I would an email notification that the document has been shared.

What I did not want to happen was:

  1. they are unable to share the document, and
  2. I do not get an email notification that it has been shared.

The user was able to share the document (expected behavior), but I did not receive an email notification that it had been shared (undesired behavior).

It appears you've already given permission to the third party to access the document, so the intermediate sharing is not really doing much. Check your notification settings
Thanks, Mike. I'll take a look at this shortly.

@Mike Williams - It doesn't look like the feature I want exists, so I submitted the suggestion in the  feedback forum. Thanks again for your insight.
