Hi All,

I have a User who is sharing a spreadsheet from his OneDrive. He 'Shares with Specific People' and gives them editing permissions.

The issue is that those people open the SS and click 'Share' with the permissions set to 'Anyone with this link can edit'.

How to keep people from sharing a doc that was shared with them?

I realize I can change the permissions in SharePoint Admin Center for my organization, but I'm asking if there is a setting that can restrict people from sharing a shared file?

 

Thanks for your input.

Cheryl

There's an option that controls that, on a per-site level. Read here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/prevent-onedrive-sharing-chains/914f2f1f-0a5c...

Hi @CheWeigand 

 

You can disable OneDrive resharing for all users with this cmdlet PowerShell : 

 

Set-SPOTenant -ODBMembersCanShare Off

 

Thank you Thijoubert!
I took your suggestion and used PS to set ODBMembersCanShare Off
I ran a Get-spotenant to see what the existing ODBMembersCanShare value was - it was Undefined - which should have allowed each individual OneDrive user the ability to set re-sharing off. It seems that when MS moved the OneDrive Admin Center to SharePoint, we may have lost that opportunity.
No matter. We think it's best to turn off re-sharing for our University.
Thank you!
