SharePoint 2013: Deactivate / Disable "Send an email invitation"

This was and still is pretty frustrating. Microsoft sets a default value which doesn't seem to be used that much in businesses. So how do you deactivate this?

1. Go to:
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS"
2. Search for a file named "AclInv.aspx"
3. Open that file and search for "id="chkSendEmailv15""
4. Change the value of "Checked" to "false"

Problem solved.


  1. unfortunatly this deosn't help in my case. our solution was to change the checked state in the JS of the acIInv file:
    search for JS function _spBodyOnLoad and add the follofing 2 lines:
    var sendEmail = (document.getElementById("<%= chkSendEmailv15.ClientID %>"));
    sendEmail.checked = false;

  2. Worked perfectly. Thanks!
