Our company just migrated to O365 and as I am trying to give people permissions and take away permissions, found out that our Gear Icon does not have 'Permission' option available.

It is taking an extra step of gear icon -> site settings -> permissions.

Which is okay but if there is a quick fix, I would love to learn!

There are multiple ways to navigate to site permissions in SharePoint in office 365. Which are as below:

  1. Hit the url in browser in below format:


  2. Click on Gear Icon --> Site settings --> Site permissions.

  3. Go to Site Contents --> Site settings --> Site permissions.

To quickly access the site permissions page, I think you can use the first approach.
