Recovering Dismissed Messages in the 365 Message Center

During a recent episode of the 365 Message Center show, a live viewer (Dean) asked how to restore dismissed messages in the list. Initially I told him it couldn’t be done, but then quickly remembered it could be done. So I promised a quick video to show how to do it.

Check out my quick video below where I show how to easily get dismissed messages back in the ‘active’ view.

How to share SharePoint Online sites with external users

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
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 turned 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.
