New Drive - how to e-mail collaborators ?

Looked at new drive view and It looks good and is easy to use but in the Share option the use of e-mail collaborators has been removed ! This was a fabulous feature that made it easy to send the team a message about a document - have I just missed this in the new version or has it gone ?
If it has gone can I stick to the old drive ?
 
Hope this makes sense to somebody !

Evening Ronel,

I think I've found what you want to do, open the document in question click on share this then opens up pop viewer from which you can insert your contacts email and notify them by email. Below is a screen shot: -

If you want to revert back to the old style drive go to settings and then you can click on "leave the new drive", hope this works.

Regards

David

David I can share the document it is after the initial sharing I want to send an email to the people I collaborate with. This feature is there in third drive which I have reverted to for now.
Thank you

ronel100...I totally agree!
 
I can't find that option either in the new Drive and I used it quite frequently.
 
Hope it becomes available soon.

I can see the feature in the new look but only only after I've clicked in the field 'Invite people:'

Think I've found out how to do this - you need to open the file. Click on the File menu and there is the option to e-mail collaborators ! It was easier when the link was available from the drive view, but at least it is still there - I can cope with that !
 
Thank you.
