Expanding on what others have written above, in SharePoint 2010 and 2013 it depends on the type of authentication you've setup your Web Application with. For classic mode you only have windows authentication so NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users will grant access to anyone that can authenticate with a valid windows credential. For claims mode you'll have at ...

Permissions reset for Access requests The solution was to re-run the original permissions setup of the site, and specify the new Site Owners group as the Owners of the site. To get there, construct a URL like this: http[s]://[HostName]/Sites/[Path-To-Site]/_layouts/15/permsetup.aspx This will open up the groups for the site. Click OK. Once you've re-...

I believe John is correct if you are limited to Out-of-the-box solutions but there is another option if custom code is available to you.

Since you would be creating this email in your own code, you would control all addresses used so you ...

I guess you found "Something went wrong..." in creating the group. The whole point of Office 365 groups is that adding users to the group as members instantly give the access to the sites resources, including files in the document library. You don’t have to worry about manually assigning permissions to all those resources because adding members to the ...

Well, SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges should do the trick. Make sure, you create a new SPSite/SPWeb within the elevated code block: var siteId = SPContext.Current.Site.ID; SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate() { using (SPSite site = new SPSite(siteId)) { //do things on the new site object } });

You can save the list in SharePoint 2007 with content - you can then save the .stp to the file system and you'll need to open up the .stp file (rename it to cab). You then need to update the version number within the manifest file from 3 to 4 and recab it. You can then upload the new .stp to SharePoint 2010 and create your list.

This usually happens when something on the page accesses data of some sort that the user does not have access to. It prompts you for credentials 3 times and then after the third time it should fail to load whatever it was trying to access because you don't actually have access, but the rest of the page loads. The item failing could be something from another ...

Is the Access service started on at least one server in Manage Services on Server Have you tried the installation on a physical box (non-VM)? Believe it or not, this can have an impact and it will help us narrow it down to a VM setting. What permissions does the App Pool Identity have (database, local)?
