Hi, I use Sharepoint Online and I would like to share a document with an external user withing our team site. However, I want this document to be read only. They should not be able to print, save or share it. Is it possible and how to do it? I try the three dots -> Manage access but I haven't figured out how to do it.

Thank you,

Hello,


The access level that you describe does not exist by default. You would need to create a unique permission level, and then add the user through that permission group, for the specific file/foler.

Here below is an "older" article, but should contain the information for you to go succeed:
