Hello, I have been battling with a problem in my organization's SharePoint. I want to share a folder with guest users so they have permission to create new files, like normal users. I checked all the admin consoles and I couldn't find a way to accomplish it. All the settings are as open as they can be. If anyone knows what could be the problem I would be grateful.

Hi @davcap

 

Did you find your answer? 

 

I have just reproduced the behavior:

- If the guest is just a "SharePoint guest" he won't be able to create content (only folders...).

- If he is an "Azure B2B guest", he will be able to create content. 

 

You will surely be interested by the new integration between SharePoint and Azure B2B.

Hope this helps!
