Share and Copy Link in SharePoint Administration

There are some small updates since I wrote:

I still recommend to change from ‘Anyone with the link’ to ‘ Specific people’ in the SharePoint Administration. Let’s see however the behaviour with the default settings.

SharePoint Administration

Policies > Sharing – Those are the default settings:

You can notice the new section ‘Choose the permission that’s selected by default for sharing links.’

Sharing per site collection is: Policies > External Sharing

Settings at creation

Also not to be forgotten per site collection:

Teams Administration

Configuration Change in Guest access for Microsoft Teams (MC228482)

We’re making some changes to the default setting for Guests in Microsoft Teams

Beginning on February 8th, 2021, we are turning on Guest access in Microsoft Teams by default for any customers who have not configured this setting. This will bring Teams Guest capability into alignment with the rest of the suite, where the setting is already on by default.

What is the difference between external users and guest access in Teams?
