If we want to share a file or folder inside a document library, we have 3 main methods:-
- Direct Access
- Grant Permission, as follow:-
now based on my testing and reading i found those points:-
Point-1) using Share and Direct access (unlike using Grant Permission) will allow the external user to access the File/Folder without having to login. and at the end the users will access the file/folder without having a guest account created inside our tenant.
Point-2) Unlike the Share & Direct Access >> using Grant Permissions >> will show the invitation inside "Access requests and invitations"
Point-3) Using Grant Permission (unlike share and direct access), and after the user access the file/folder a guest account will be created for the user inside out office 365..
Point-4) If we want to share a document library or list or a site when we only have the option to use Grant Permission
So i have those 3 questions:-
Question-1) is my above 4 points valid and accurate? or i am missing something?
Question-2) when to use each option ? and is there a method that is preferred over the other?
Question-3) Is Share and Direct access have the exact same behaviors and results ?
