Always show options to send email invitation and select group or permission level
My users want the option to send email from the Share UI to be more obvious. Currently it is on by default and hidden under Show Options. Often they complain they didn't want to send email, especially if adding a large group. Also, depending on site group structure, the default group selected might be one with too much access, so I think that should not be hidden under Show Options either, regardless of the fact it has the text at the top of the window.
It is possible to use the ‘Grant Access’ dialog to add new users or groups to an item, and includes a checkbox for notifying recipients.
If you have additional suggestions for this area, please open a new idea in the OneDrive —> Sharing and Collaboration section. https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913531

I agree or set the default to not checked

This checkbox should absolutely be unchecked by default, and shown by default (no "Hide Options" expando).
The "This site has been shared with you" email is often confusing for our users. And if you screw up and leave this checked when you add Everyone to a group...that's a bad day.
