I recently had a unfortunate experience when adding Yammer to our company Intranet in SharePoint Online.

After creating a new discussion, a invitation had been sent to everyone in the company. I want to prevent this at any cost.

Now I do again need a discussion platform, but this time with the old school application "discussion board" from the app list.

Does anyone know if this application will send a invitation mail to every employee again?


The short answer to your question is No.

If you are creating a classic Discussion Board app in SharePoint, it will not send any invitation/email to site users.
