Retirement, Updated message, User impact



Updated March 16, 2021: Based on learning's from our early rings and your feedback we have made the decision to not proceed as outlined below. The Send link to Outlook sharing option will not be retired at this time. Thank you for your feedback.
Note: These changes do not apply to the OneDrive mobile app on iOS or Android.
Previously we had rolled out this change and disabled the ability to share a link via the Outlook Share Target. We have restored the functionality to ensure customers have time to educate and prepare their users as appropriate. We will be moving forward with this change as outlined below. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Users will soon be unable to share a link directly via the Outlook Share Target in OneDrive and SharePoint. Customers can still share a link via e-mail by typing an e-mail address and clicking send, as well as the ability to copy a link to their clipboard. This change only removes the option to automatically open an Outlook compose window with a sharing link pasted in.
