SharePoint Online - Guest Access No Login Required


  • Guest Access No Login links aren't working. I've done some research and found one response that these links only work with specific files. Is this true? I am able to create one of these links to a web page on my site. Why would I have the option to create one if it won't work.

    What I really need, is a way to allow users to view a sub-site without logging in. Any ideas?

    Please help,

  • Anonymous access to sites or sub-sites is not supported in Office 365.  I'm not suprised that a guest link to a web page won't work.  Unlike regular documents the web page depends on too many things that the anonymous user doesn't have access to.  A guest link to a document contains everything you need to view the document.
