I want to forbid user access to sharepoint and to give him access to other Office365 applications.User has Office E3 licence.

I removed user from Sharepoint collection https://company.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0

Removed from SPO site

Remove-SPOUser -Site "https://company.sharepoint.com/" -LoginName "user@company.com"

But user can still login to https://company.sharepoint.com/

Get-SPOUser -Site "https://company.sharepoint.com/" -LoginName "test@company.com"

Display Name Login Name                     Groups User Type
------------ ----------                     ------ ---------
test test test@company.com                  {}      Member  

Used the site Cog --> Site Settings On this new page click on Site Permissions In the ribbon checked the user's name in the Check Permissions tool.

On site i want to remove access from,on site permissions, Site visitors are "Everyone except external users"

Here are permissions:

EditGiven through the "Members" group.

Limited AccessGiven through the "SharePointHome OrgLinks Viewers" group.

On site i want to remove access from,on site permissions, Site visitors are "Everyone except external users"

I located both groups,"SharePointHome OrgLinks Viewers" and "Members" and both have only one member: Everyone except external users

Is it safe to remove that group from site ?

  • User will be removed from that group. Just try with one user. BTW it is root site, all users need read access to it – Waqas Sarwar MVP Jul 30 at 15:21
  • In those 2 groups, there are no individual users in that group. – overflowed Jul 30 at 18:37
