Working with SharePoint Online, we have a team site setup and a set of document libraries.
The permissions were set at the site level and inherited to all libraries. For one of the sub folders (Folder1) we broke inheritance and gave a new group (Group1) read access only.
Group1 was not included at the site level, it was however granted limited access at the site level automatically by SharePoint once the permissions for Folder1 were assigned.
The users in Group1 can access Folder1 if the direct url is used, but cannot navigate using the site main page and navigation bar.
My understanding of limited access is that they users will be able to navigate the site and reach the resource they have higher than limited access permissions for.
Is it possible grant additional read only permissions to the main site resources to allow navigation but only see resources in which they have permissions higher than limited access?
