  • Managing SharePoint Access Requests

    Managing SharePoint Access Requests

    During a recent intranet deployment project, a client asked what would happen if she clicked the ‘Accept’ link on the SharePoint access request email she received from one of her coworkers.

What permissions do users get if you accept their access request? How are those users managed on the SharePoint site and is there a best practice for managing access requests? Watch the video below to find out!

    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! 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.
