Can you add members to sharepoint group without sending an email?

Copper Contributor

I have a sharepoint site with different permissions groups. When creating a new group and adding people,I will uncheck the box to send an email notification but it will send an email to everyone anyway. Is this a bug or am I missing something?


Ideally I would like to be able to add people or reconfigure what groups they are a part of without flooding everyone's inbox.

Hi @KFlood
To add members to a SharePoint group without sending email notifications, follow these steps:
1- Log in to the SharePoint site and access the group settings.
2- Manage the group members.
3- Disable email notifications.
4- Save the changes.
5- Test the process to ensure no email notifications are sent.

By following these steps, you can add or modify SharePoint group members without flooding everyone's inbox.

@Lalit Mohan I know there's a checkbox to prevent it sending an email invite but sending it unchecked still sent the emails.
