Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you ...
There is no white listing functionality that exists in SharePoint Online like that. Your option would be to Allow both external users who accept sharing invitations and anonymous guest links or individually manage access.
I would rather do the latter. It isn't too much effort to add external users as necessary. My best practice is to create a new group on ...
As far as I know its still not possible, but they started working on it in march.
Started working on external sharing a channel with authenticated
And tbh I'm not sure what will happen to O365 Video after they started working on Stream
Comment from the Office 365 Team:
Microsoft Stream builds upon the learnings and success of Office 365
Yes, you don't need to assign the licence for external users. The Hotmail accounts that you create will have only basic collaboration rights and few features won't be available (like you cannot make them site owners also they cannot install software like Office,Teams from tenant)
It's important to understand 2 types of external users
(a) Authenticated ...
The access provision to external user works via invitation sent to his / her email and the external user can click on the invitation link to login for first time (after creating a MS account if not already associated with external user's email). Important thing here is the external user can click on the invitation link and use any email (with MS account) to ...
Yes, and they show up as active (Unlicensed) users in you Admin Center [https://portal.office.com/adminportal/home#/users].
You will see them with their full e-mail address (@-sign changed to underscore _) like this:
So technically they are a part of Azure AD which controls authentication in you ...
No, it's not possible to share folders with "No sign-in required" at this moment. Anonymous links are available only for individual files or document. In future updates to Office 365 it will be available. Do keep checking the messages in your Office 365 admin center.
Also, usually this update will be rolled out initially to "First release" users. So you ...
You can delete them from SharePoint Online, but as these are external IDs so user manage it.
If you need to remove external users so that they no longer have access to sites that have been shared with them, you can do so by removing them from the list of external users in Office 365 Service Settings.
Go to Admin > Service Settings > sites and document ...
Access denied is an authorization failure from SharePoint...this might sound crazy, but you didn't specifically mention it in your post, so...did you give them access to the site first? From the error message, it doesn't sound like it.
Yes you can share with users who have yahoo or gmail email addresses. If you require external sharing with authenticated external users then it requires a Microsoft account. If you share with yahoo or gmail, the users will be prompted to create a Microsoft account when the user accepts the sharing invitation.
in that scenario you have two options:
Sharing documents as a guest link does not required the sign in.
"Share a document, but don’t require sign-in. Share a link to a non-sensitive or non-confidential document with people outside your organization so that they can either view it or update it with feedback. These people do not require ongoing access to ...
OK whilst "_ModerationStatus" values are 0..4 (where 0=Approved), this is not the same as the "Status" field of an Access Request, which has values I have obtained from the Microsoft.SharePoint.SPAccessRequestsUtility (public enum StatusToInt), as well as accessrequestsviewtemplate.debug.js file (located in 15 hive, Layouts folder):
0=Pending (which could ...
Statuses are stored in Approval Status field (Internal Name: _ModerationStatus) for the specified Access Requests list
How to retrieve values of _ModerationStatus field via CSOM
var listTitle = "Access Requests";
var fieldName = "_ModerationStatus";
var list = ctx.Web.Lists.GetByTitle(listTitle);
var field = list.Fields.GetByInternalNameOrTitle(fieldName);
A very good way to remove external users is with Powershell. Very often those that you removed from GUI still somehow remain.
First check if there are any:
Get-SPOExternalUser -SiteUrl https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/SITENAME -PageSize 50
Then remove the unwanted one:
Thanks to this you can:
re-invite the user if earlier his ...
You could create a VPN network from your home to your office network. (Recommanded)
Alternate access mappings isn't just working for External access, you need to configure too in your router and your DNS server, that's a little complexe in this situation.
If you are doing it for the first time, you need to set another property called SharingDomainRestrictionMode to AllowList mode using below cmdlet:
Set-SPOTenant -SharingDomainRestrictionMode AllowList -SharingAllowedDomainList "amit.com"
Every time you update the SharingAllowedDomainList, it overwrites the existing values. So, you can use below cmdlet to ...
I have a similar issue, but invitations to external users are sent in Dutch instead of English. Invitations to internal users are correct, in English. Sender's regional and language settings are all English. Sender is on Citrix XenDesktop, so signs in via ADFS. Are you using XenDesktop too?

I don't believe this is possible to move the shared recipients to BCC, however you can add email addresses to BCC through the SPO PowerShell cmdlets here.
Setting the BccExternalSharingInvitations parameter to $true and providing a list of email addresses to BccExternalSharingInvitationsList should satisfy your requirement
There's a whole raft of options that can affect how external users interact with SharePoint Online. But to keep this concise and answer your question:
Yes, external users (or partners) can be added to SharePoint Online using their own O365 (Work or School Accounts). However, at the moment, these users should be added to your AAD tenant as Guest Users through ...
It can be done OOTB.
Your site collection needs to allow external users, and this is something which can be configured at the point the site collection is created. The options include the following:
No external sharing – sites and documents can only be shared with
internal users in your Office 365 subscription.
Sharing only with external users in ...
The tenant permissions supersede the site collection. If you don't share outside your organization at the tenant level, then the site collection setting will restrict who can be invited to members of your organization.
Just adding some extra information for the community.
You do not need to buy licenses for adding external users to SharePoint Online. Also, you can add unlimited external users as per Microsoft documentation. Source.These external users will only have limited features and will not have full features of SharePoint Online/o365 like Delve, OneDrive, enterprise ...
Since InfoPath Forms Services are only supported in Office 365 Enterprise E3 plans or higher, if external users want to access InfoPath forms, they need to login with credentials. More information you can check in the article:

Actually, there are 4 places, not 3 to manage external collaboration and guest access in Teams.
Azure Active Directory Settings.
Guest Access Settings in Microsoft Teams.
Guest Settings in Microsoft 365 Groups.
SharePoint Sharing Settings for organization and sites
So to avoid such confusion, you have first to understand Guest access Vs External access in ...
I have been dealing with these external access issues for quite some time. The first part of the question - If they are using Office 365, ALWAYS use the ORGANIZATIONAL EMAIL, Microsoft has worded this screen absolutely terribly.
The second issue, where end users get errors, make certain the external user is using in-private or incognito browsing. What we ...
