So what is the difference between ‘Share’ (or ‘Copy link’) and ‘Direct Access’ (+Advanced and classic permissions)?
Share or Copy link / Links giving access:
You can share with a user and an AD group.
You cannot share with a SharePoint group or a Microsoft 365 group.
People can only gain access to the file or folder by following a link that has been sent to them. Until they follow the link, they won’t have access to the file or folder, and they won’t find it by using Search.
Downloading certain types of files (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, mp4, …) can be blocked.
You cannot share a library, a list or a site. Only a folder, an item and a file can be shared.
Permission inheritance is broken.
Power Automate action: Create sharing link for a file or folder.
Direct Access, Advanced, Classic Permissions:
You can give access to a user, an AD group, a SharePoint group and a Microsoft 365 group.
The shared information is findable.
You can create custom levels of security.
You can give access to a site, a library, a list, a folder, an item or a file.
Permission inheritance is broken.
Power Automate action: Grant access to an item or a folder (doesn’t allow the use of a SharePoint group).

Pour cette nouvelle fonctionnalité, on se demande d’où provient ce calendrier: est-ce qu’il s’agit du calendrier du groupe ou non?
Voici comment je l’ai vérifié:
J’ai créé un groupe O365 par Outlook. Donc je peux voir le calendrier de ce groupe.
Puis j’ai créé un Team à partir de ce groupe. Donc je peux toujours voir le calendrier de ce groupe/Team.
Quand je crée une réunion dans un calendrier de canal, je peux voir cette même réunion dans le calendrier de groupe.
Le calendrier de groupe me permet de voir rassemblées toutes les réunions de tous les canaux. Cependant si je créé une réunion dans le calendrier de groupe directement, je ne peux pas voir cette réunion dans aucun des calendriers de canal de Team.
Donc les calendriers de canal sont un ‘affichage filtré’ du calendrier de groupe.
Depuis mars 2018, à la création d’un Teams, le groupe O365 associé est caché dans Outlook.
Roadmap ID 26955 ‘Office 365 Groups created from Microsoft Teams will be hidden from Outlook by default’
The roadmap feature states: ‘Based on customer feedback, new Office 365 Groups generated as a result of creating a team in Microsoft Teams will no longer show in Outlook by default. For customers that want to continue with the existing behavior of showing these groups in Outlook, an Exchange Online PowerShell cmdlet will be provided which can enable the group for the Outlook experience. Groups created through Outlook and then later enabled for Teams will continue to show in both Outlook and Teams. This update will gradually roll out across Outlook and Teams in the coming months.’ This change is also announced in the Office 365 Message Center (MC133135).
C’est intéressant de voir qu’il y a une différence entre cacher de la section des groupes dans Outlook et de la liste globale d’adresses dans Outlook.
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?
When creating a Microsoft 365 group in Outlook or SharePoint, the group mailbox is visible in Outlook. When creating a team in Teams, the group mailbox is hidden by default. You can use the Set-UnifiedGroup cmdlet with the HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled parameter to make a mailbox visible.
