I created a SP group which I am the owner of and added 2 users to it. Since I'm the owner I got both invites but they have a link to our Legal SP site in them, not just info saying they are now members of XYZ group (which I just created). Furthermore, SP automatically granted permissions to one of the users to the Legal site!
I checked the default groups for the Legal site and they are what they should be and not associated with the new group I created.
Where should I look to troubleshoot this more? Thank you for the help.
