Since SharePoint is the backend for the files in teams I don't think this is possible but I thought I'd ask the group.

Can I stop members of a team from sharing files outside of that team, even with other users in the tenant. I want to be able to 100% know that only the team members can access the files, if a member shares with an user outside the team its not easy for other members or for a report of permissions on those files.

I found this link which makes me think its not possible. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/solutions/microsoft-365-limit-sharing?view=o365-world...

 

Thanks,jb

Hi! You can easily limit sharing outside the org per team basis but not within the organisation.

Then you have to utilize more advanced features like AIP for example
