Yes! Sharing our private Office 365 SharePoint site to external users is possible. Yes, Microsoft made it absolutely possible! In my previous post, I have demonstrated on how to share a content in our SharePoint Online private site to people outside our organization. In this post, moreover, I will demonstrate on how we could share a site collection in SharePoint Online to our external users.
- Let us start by configuring our site collection to “Allow external users who accept sharing invitations and sign in as authenticated users”.
- In our site collection, let us add an external user to a specific group. An email invitation will automatically be sent.
- When our external user received our invitation, he could simply click the link provided on the notication.
- Without extra effort, our external user could now log to our SharePoint Online private site in Office 365 as an authenticated user.
Hope this would help. Happy SharePoint-ing in Office 365!
