Changing permissions for External Users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm trying to setup so external users can upload and edit files in a document library, but not delete them.

    I've been able to create a permissions level that allows this, however i cannot get it to apply to guests / external users.  

    Can this be done? where does sharepoint go to get the permissions for external users to a site?  

    Thanks,

  • Hi RLDavies,

    You can grant access of a SharePoint Online site to the external users as normal users via Site Permissions page.

    However, external sharing has to be turned on for this site, even though the external users have been added to the organization directory and marked as Guest Users. When you grant permission to the guest users, it will still prompt “xx is outside of your organization”.

    Best regards,
