Microsofts latest update to Office 365 has changed the way “Share” function operates. Previously, when you clicked the “Share” button, you were presented with a list of options, including sharing a link, or attaching a copy of your document instead.
Now, if the file you are working on is already saved in a shareable OneDrive or Sharepoint locationsync’d, the only option you are presented is to share a link to the document. The “Send a Copy” option is missing.
The workaround is to pin the Send menu to your quick access toolbar, which will then give you access to the Send A Copy function again.
