Manage Access Sends Unwanted Emails

Copper Contributor

I use OneDrive for a lot of internal projects and collaborations. Often times, I will create a link to share a file with certain users for the sake of review and approval. Later, as I need to grant access to additional users, I will utilize the "Manage Access" feature. Sometimes (randomly, it seems), when I grant that access, unbeknownst to me, OneDrive will send an email to the new users to whom I've granted access, which is not my intention. My intention is to grant those users access, copy the link and then send a more formal email or Teams message. As a professional communicator, there are professional ramifications when this glitch occurs. The fact that it happens intermittently tells me this has to be a bug.


Has anyone else experienced this? Are there known solutions?
