Dear Community,

 

A particular Team needs to share some of it's files widely -  outside of the Organization, to a large number of people. These external people are not Guests of the Team. How can I allow this Team to create "Anyone with the Link" sharing for their files?

 

Many Thanks

This is an upcoming feature in Teams, although already possible if you click “open in SharePoint” and click Share on a file from inside SharePoint.
Also this depends if the organization allows anonymous sharing.

I figured it out! I went to the SharePoint Admin Center, and on the Active Sites page, chose the Teams site (blue check mark). At the top, I chose Sharing, and changed the External Sharing setting to "Anyone".

 

Back in Teams, when I viewed the Team's Files on Sharepoint, I was able to create the "Anyone" link.

 

 

I've managed to change settings so the 'anyone with this link' works in general and standard channels, but this does not show in private channels... Any ideas please?
