We are using SharePoint online. I have the setting to require check out before a document could be edited on a document library. When I try to share this library with an external user it gives error.
Office 365 Sharing failed: The guest link couldn't be created. If your documents >are required to be checked out before editing, you won't be able to create guest >links for editing them.
Please note that external sharing was working for this library when the setting to require check out was turned off.
I want to keep the setting to require check out on, and I also want external user to have share with
"can edit" rights. Please tell me if there is a solution or workaround for this situation. Please also share your thoughts why Microsoft have made these settings this way.
