There are 2 things I'm trying to wrap my head around.
In the SharePoint Online library, when I select a file, I have the option to "Share" on the top ribbon. As soon as I select more than one file, the functionality disappears, it is no longer available. I understand this is a normal behavior. But, is there any way to change this? How can I bulk share files from library? (I would like to select files and share them via email)
I have created a choice column with 2 options: Public and Confidential. Files tagged "Confidential" shouldn't be available for everyone to download freely (users should only be able to read them). I am aware SharePoint doesn't support permissions management based on metadata/categories. I was thinking about creating a folder with separate permissions - in this case, Restricted View would probably do the trick. However, this solution is far from perfect - I would say it's crude and clunky. Not very sophisticated.
These two functionalities should work together. So, I would like to be able to share multiple files at once + if I share files tagged "Confidential", the person should be able to read, but not to download.
There are probably no out of the box solutions. Do you have any ideas? I really don't know how to go about this. Thank you.
