    Hi @Чингис Рустемов

    Sharing it with users in the form of a link will cause the file to have a unique permission, so opening the file on the site will have a permission warning reminder. Per my test, when you change the group's permissions from Restricted View to View Only, you won't get a warning.
    The operation is as follows: Edit User Permissions with group selected->Select View Only->OK
