Hi,

 

When I create a Team, it automatically generates a SharePoint. Can I have different security settings for the SharePoint and Teams?

 

The idea is that the files in the SharePoint should be accessible for my entire organisation. But only a few people need access to the Team. So the documents in the documents in the SharePoint are public but in communication part in Teams is not. Can I do that?

 

Or do I need to create a Teams and then manually move the files to a public SharePoint? I don't want all several thousand members of each of my Teams ...but they all need to be able to access the files.

Well,
Them Teams site is still SharePoint so you can only grant access to the SharePoint site to the people you want and that means they are not going to be added to the Team behind the scenes
SharePoint is seperate permissions. Long as you add to the site permissions and use the Sharepoint groups / permissions and don’t add people to the Office 365 group for the site you can have the whole org access the site easily by adding sharing the site from the cog wheel > site permissions > share site button. Pick site only not the group option then add everyone but external users group or a group you may have for all employees and then specify read / edit etc. and your good to go. They will have access to the site but not the team.
