Build a Flow that runs on the selected document and let the flow reset all sharing with the action Stop sharing an item or a file.

The answer is "No" (Even though you excluded the knowledge of the link for the other user) Using the Share option without sign in is something I would treat as unsecured data. Anyone with access to the link can access it. The information to access the item are encoded in the link itself. You used "never" so the answer was harsh. They will only see the ...

The only way to achieve this would be by protecting the other sheets in Excel. There is no way for SharePoint to differentiate permissions per worksheet unfortunately. Another way would be to split it into different Excel files.

As an alternate way to overcome this issue, we can add user or group at the site level, then on folder level apply "stop inheriting permission", finally remove all users or groups which you do not need at the folder level, and retain the one which you want to assign permissions. And also, try deactivating the feature "Limited-access user permission ...

Audit reports indeed contains IP address, but Audit log search depends on activities. There is no activity relating to sign-in actions in SharePoint Online. I assume you can use activities like “Accessed file” or “Viewed page” as a workaround. References: Search the Office 365 audit log to troubleshoot common scenarios. How to see the IP addresses from ...

Unfortinately that's not possible. You could remove the option to see User Information, but it won't remove the button. Your only option is the ugly implementation of display: none;.

A few options/possibilities to consider here: If you've made this change within the past 24 hours, it may still be pending to propagate to the site collection level in your SPO environment (similar to other changes made in the admin console). Check the sharing settings at the site collection level in which you're working. I would recommend doing this in two ...

You should be able to do this using the O365 content search and a bit of PowerShell: Get a list of all shared documents from content search or eDiscovery Iterate over this list and use the External Sharing API (CSOM) from PowerShell to un-share and re-share the documents Content Search Is currently in beta, so you need preview permission to run it. You can ...

You can use the native CSOM's CreateOrganizationSharingLink method to get the URL of the document. You need to specify the full URL of the document in the parameter. If you want the edit link, keep the 3rd parameter value set to true, else change it to false if you want the view link. The sample code is as below: var orgEditLink = Microsoft.SharePoint....

There is no guarantee that user2 will not see folder1. If User2 gets the shared link to folder1 then user2 will for sure see folder1. Only way of making it totally secure is to share the folder in question to a specific user by entering that users email.

You can invite external users via Azure B2B. See What is Azure AD B2B collaboration? for information on how to add users to Azure. You can then add them as normal to SharePoint Online/OneDrive for Business.

If you are using SharePoint 2013 or later, create a subsite based on the "Community Site" template. It supports questions and answers, and even a point based scoring system with titles/metals if you like. Tagging will not work exactly the same, but you can create categories of questions.

The 'sharing' options have not changed between 2013 and 2016. You could use standard Active Directory accounts and hand those out to non-employees. This requires a Windows User CAL or External Connector (last I looked, that evens out at ~60 users). On the SharePoint side, no licensing is required. You could also federate using Azure ACS and develop custom ...

Our experience is that after setting the above suggested settings, users could still share and copy links to those without access and it broke permission inheritancce (even broke it when the recipients already had access). We found that on top of disabling sharing you need to change all users from 'edit' permissions to 'contribute'. The edit permissions ...
