Copy users between sitecollection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi! I'm inviting external users to a sitecollection called "extranet".

    They will also need access to a list in Another sitecollection. So my plan is to add the external user to a Group in the other sitecollection but that is not possible since the users does not exist in the site Collection, only in the extranet SiteCollection.

    How Can I "copy" the user from the Extranet Site Collection to the other SC so I'm able to add them to a Group?

  • Hi Magnus,

    Is your environment Office 365 SharePoint Online ?

    If yes, as I understand, there is no easy way to copy external user to site group currently and it is necessary to Share the permission to external user in Other site collection so that the user can get access to the list.

    More information:
