Best solution to work with external users


  • Hi

    We're using Office 365 Sharepoint Online and can share single files with external users without any problem.

    I have know created a new documentlibrary with some internal users. This internal users creates folders an have to create a share link to this folder. The email of the external user is selected and email is send. The users then receives the link and when opened, access is denied. The user has not the required rights.
    What's wrong, when I can share a single file with this external user but no folder?

    I've testet Office Groups, but with the documents in the groups, other internal users can't share with new external users.

    What's your prefered solution to work with external users, some anonymous(share link), some with Microsoft-Account, some only read and other with upload rights?

    best regards
