I'm fairly new to Sharepoint, so forgive my ignorance. I'm in the new online experience o365.
I've created a communication site as my front page and added some pages to it. I wanted to create permission groups for my users so I blew out all the other groups and created them from scratch using the advanced permissions link. I created an Employees group with all employees in a restricted security setting which indicates they are all read only, which is what I want. I've added that group to the communication site main page and now all users trying to view the site need to request access.
I'm unclear on how to do this. I've used the permissions checker and typed in the group and also individuals to see if they have access, which they do. So it's odd that all but me need to request access
