Limiting video permissions to a distribution list

Occasional Contributor

When setting video permissions, you can sometimes type the name or email address of a distribution list in the "People" field. This allows you to limit to the people on the list. The thing is though that some lists show up, and others do not. Why is this?

@Will FindlayThe documentation here says what is accepted when people is selected. What you are trying is maybe a distribution group, see . They are not supported.

Thank you! That makes sense. This was a distribution group. It is unfortunate that they are not supported here. Apparently dist. groups cannot be upgraded to Microsoft 365 groups if they are part of other distribution groups. Since distribution groups existed long before Microsoft 365 groups, it sounds like our IT group would have a lot of untangling to do to sort this out. @Tomislav Karafilov
