Change to ODB/SPO sharing dialog specific people option

Hi all,

 

Based on feedback, we're making a small update to how the new sharing dialog works with the "Specific People" option.

 

You may recall that we previously had two people pickers in the dialog: One to select who the sharing link work for and another to choose who to actually send the link to. We have eliminated the first people picker and have folded the functionality together. Here's a quick example:snip_20170828111412.pngsnip_20170828111435.png

When "Specific People" is selected as the default link type, users will no longer need to open the Links settings page to choose who they want to share with. This change is rolling out now and should be available in all organizations by the end of the day.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

Tagging @Juan Carlos González Martín and @Andrew Silcock as I know they were both interested in this change :)

Thanks for this update Stephen!!! I will blog about it as soon as I seen on my tenants :-).

Re: Change to ODB/SPO sharing dialog specific people option

Thanks very much for looking into this and letting us know Stephen.

I will have a test this morning and let you know. Initial testing looks good though.

One thing we're wondering, is it going to be possible in the future to change the default option so that when clicking on Share and Copy, it defaults to "People with existing access" - Only people who already have access can use this link? We're currently able to change it to default to all other options but this one. Presumably, because this option isn't available in OneDrive, it makes it harder to implement?

Hi @Andrew Silcock,

 

With this update, you should actually see "People with existing access" in OneDrive as well :) We don't currently have any plans to add it as an option for "default" but it's something I'm watching for feedback on. 

 

Thanks!

You can change the default at the tenant from OneDrive Admin > Sharing > Default Sharing Links and select 'Direct'. I am not aware of a way change the default at the user level.
