After studying e.g. this article and playing around with external sharing I found it a very uncontrollable and risky, undesirable approach. For a project Site I decided to create regular O365 accounts for the project members outside the organisation, but without assigning them licenses. This way the access and permissions for these external users could be well controlled. Actually I'm quit happy with this solution, but I'm uncertain because I never met articles about this. Maybe I missed some aspects.
My questions are:
- Is this legit, beacuse in this scenario many users can use the SharePoint without paying ?
- Are there any technical or functional objections against this approach ?
