OneDrive Link Sharing Glitch

Copper Contributor

One of the problems I've been experiencing with OneDrive is when sharing links to files, sometimes OneDrive will automatically generate an email to a user even though I didn't specifically intend to send them one.


When I send out a link to a file (a video, in my case) for review, I limit permissions to certain individuals by typing their names into the field highlighted below.

Later, when I want to grant access to additional users via that already-created link, I will click on the three dots below to "manage access."

Then, I will select the cog icon to go into the link settings.

My last step is to add new users, click "Apply" (not visible here) at the bottom of the window and click "Copy."

What sometimes happens, though, is OneDrive will seemingly glitch and auto-send email notifications to certain added users, even though I never click "Send" or "Invite." Is this a known issue? Or can anyone offer insight?
