How to share SharePoint Online sites with external users

External Sharing Video

I created a new SharePoint Online Communications site recently and I wanted to share it with someone outside my organization. Unfortunately, when I tried to share the site with them, I received an error!

External Sharing Error

The error, “Your organization’s policies don’t allow you to share with these users. Go to External Sharing in the Office 365 admin center to enable it.“, is pretty straightforward and to the point: external sharing is┬áturned off for Office 365 and I need to enable it….or is the error wrong?!?

Check out my video below where I show the issue and how to enable external sharing in SharePoint Online.
