Hello,

 

I have sharepoint site from a private MS Teams.

 

In in it, I have a document library that has read/edit permissions for different folders/documents. 

 

I'd like to set up one folder whose content can be read by any visitor for this sharepoint site. 

 

I went into Manage Access / Advanced / Stop Inheriting User Permissions / Grant Permissions and I added "<MS Teams/Sharepoint Site name> visitors".

 

Yet, my visitors still can't access the documents and need to request unique access.

 

Is there a way of making this folder permission free / accessible by all please?

 

Thank you!

You will need to add users into the visitors group.

 

If Visitors are all internal users then add "Everyone except external users"  

 

 

@Andrew Hodges perfect! "Everyone except external users" will be the answer I believe. Thank you!
