  5. Select the role:
    edit – the recipient can edit
    view – the recipient can only view
  6. You can enter a custom email message, OneDrive will include it in the invitation email. The invitation email is sent when a new permission is added or when the role of an existing permission is modified.
  7. Check Requires sign-in to specify the recipient of the invitation is required to sign-in to access the shared item. OneDrive may return an error if the recipient is not an OneDrive user.
