Sharing links

We should have the ability to copy the URL of a document. That ability was lost with the recent upgrade.

The various "get link" functions are all about passing tokens & changing access. But if I'm sharing a document with an existing user of the SP site, I just want to share the link.

        Send link by email would be a nice touch. The idea is being able to share a link with people who already have access to the content.

        This functionality creates havoc on the permission groups. Duplication of people that are already in groups that have access. Very messy.

        I would agree with this! The "Restricted Link" will allow you to just get a link to a document without the tokens for sharing the document, however, the term "Restricted Link" is confusing to the end users and does not explain that people that already have permissions to the document will be able to access the document.
