Add assignment cycling and not working

New Contributor

Hi there,

this is an issue we try to solve since a while.

When adding an assignment to a task the search results remains empty and the search icon is cycling.

We checked on different computers, different browsers and its everywhere the same.

When doing the same as Global Admin we can't reproduce this issue.


Could there be an permission issue for normal users reading the O365 Group members ?

Any other hint ?


Many thanks in advance,

cool, weeks after trying to sort it out, posting here to get help and finding the solution one hour later.
As simple as it is:
Set-MsolCompanySettings -UsersPermissionToReadOtherUsersEnabled $True

I have no idea why it was set to $false before.

PS.: that also enables the "share" button Functionality in Power BI again :)
