SharePoint Online - share document set with anonymous user

    Question

  • I have a SharePoint Online account through O365 and need to share specific documents with external users.  Because there are multiple related documents for each user, I created document sets to store the files. While I can share a single document using anonymous links (not forcing the user to create a Microsoft Account), I don't seem to be able to share an entire document set. Can anyone advise whether it is possible, or if it is not - suggest another option?

  • Thanks.  I need something between a single document and an entire document library.  Do you know of any third-party add ins that might enable the sharing of a document set?
