Microsoft groupe member without edit permissions on Sharepoint

Occasional Visitor

Hi,

I'm trying to find a way to enroll users in a Sharepoint site AND the Microsoft group associated with the site (to access the shared calendar and mailing list), but I want them to have read-only permissions on the Sharepoint site. But everytime I tried to enroll them as members of the group, event tho they're visitors in the sharepoint advanced settings, they get editing permissions. I've tried creating custom permission groups in Sharepoint permissions settings and enroll them in but this is overriden with edit permissions when I enroll them as members of the MS365 group.

tl;dr I'm looking for a way to enroll users in a MS365 Groups but without them having editing permissions over the Sharepoint site.

@camhrv Microsoft 365 groups don't have view-only access, so any users you wish to have view permissions on the site must be added directly to the Visitors group on the site.

By default, M365 group is added to SharePoint site members group and M365 group owners become site owners, and group members become site members.
