What happened with reader role in SharePoint Online?

Copper Contributor

Hello,

 

If I try to add a new user in SharePoint Online using reader role permission it says that he don't have access to the site. Why? Now, only O365 group can access? But O365 has collaborative access and edit access and I don't want to use this permission.

 

How can I give some users, read permissions in SharePoint online?

 

Regards

Hello @santiago1976 

 

do you try to add a internal or external user?

 

You can set on different levels if sharing of SharePoint sites is allowed at all or not.

And no, you can set different permissions on SharePoint sites. Also you can set other permissions on SharePoint then in MS Teams, but it's not recommend.

 

Documentations are here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/modern-experience-sharing-permissions 

 

Have you more informations or a PrintScree about your issue?

 

Best, Dave

Hi @David Mehr,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Fixed. The problem is that if you try to add the users in the SharePoint visitor groups (old groups) directly it doesn't work, but if you do it from the sharing functionality, it does work.

Hello @santiago1976 

 

nice to hear :clapping_hands:

 

:backhand_index_pointing_right: I think you would need to clean up and correct the permissions on the site so this doesn't happen anymore.
