Share or Direct Access

In the previous article, I concluded that there is no difference in the back end between ‘Share’ and ‘Copy link’. In both cases a link is created.

Share and Copy Links in details | KTNN SharePoint (

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).

Calendrier de canal dans Teams

Feature ID: 68910 Road Map

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:

  1. J’ai créé un groupe O365 par Outlook. Donc je peux voir le calendrier de ce groupe.
  2. Puis j’ai créé un Team à partir de ce groupe. Donc je peux toujours voir le calendrier de ce groupe/Team.
  3. Quand je crée une réunion dans un calendrier de canal, je peux voir cette même réunion dans le calendrier de groupe.
  4. 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.

An intro to channel calendars in Microsoft Teams | jumpto365 Blog * attention: je ne suis pas d’accord avec ‘This calendar has nothing to do with the Microsoft 365 Group calendar that exists behind the scenes.’

Parenthèse à propos des groupes Teams cachés:

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.

Share and Copy Links in details

What are really the differences when you share or copy a link?

Share or copy a link has the same effect in case you choose one of the 4 link options. It’s only the intent of the user that is different.

For each option, you can see below how it is displayed in the Manage access panel and the advanced interface (SharePoint permissions).

1) Share or Copy link – Anyone with the link

  • Inheritance break
  • Transferrable
  • Revocable secret key

Share (user must be chosen):

  • Why isn’t this user showing in the Manage access panel? We must go to More options (…) to view who it is shared with.

Copy link (user cannot be chosen):

2) Share or Copy link – People in organisation with the link

  • Inheritance break
  • Can be forwarded within my organization
  • Blocks external people form accessing

Share (user must be chosen):

  • Why isn’t this user showing in the Manage access panel? We must go to More options (…) to view who it is shared with.

Copy link (user cannot be chosen):

Sharegate: Organization Guest link Explicit

3) Share or Copy link – People with existing access

  • Permission inheritance

Share (user must be chosen, must already have access)

Copy link (user cannot be chosen)

4) Share or Copy link – Specific people

  • Inheritance break
  • Non-transferrable
  • Revocable secret key
  • Requires people to prove they are intended recipients

Share and Copy link (user must be chosen):

  • Why isn’t this user showing in the SharePoint permission?

Sharegate: SharingLinks + account

Remove Sharing

If you delete a link, the permission of the file will not return to normal because the inheritance break will stay.

‘Stop sharing’ is available even if the document was never shared. If you click on ‘Stop sharing’, the inheritance will be broken and only the ‘Owners of …’ will have ‘Full control’ access.

Stop sharing OneDrive or SharePoint files or folders, or change permissions – Office Support (

‘Delete unique permission’ is the only way to reset the permissions.

You can share flows in either of these ways:

  1. You can add co-workers or groups in your organization as owners on your flows, so they can also edit and manage the flow.
  2. For flows that can be run manually, you can also grant other people or groups in your organization permission to just run the flow.
