Share communications site to "Anyone"

Copper Contributor

Hi! I have problems sharing my communications site externally. I have set all the recommended settings for sharing external on both tenant and site level. But still when I choose to share it by link the option "anyone" is not available to choose.

When looking at instructions, the last step (Step 3) in this help article - - is not applicable to me. The button Add members is non-existent and instead it looks like the image below.

Any help on how to solve this and/or recreate step 3 with the new layout? Thanks!
