Enable external sharing in Microsoft Teams at IU

At Indiana University, you can request a team in Microsoft Teams with or without external sharing enabled. To enable external sharing if your team was initially requested without it:

  1. Contact the Support Center to request external sharing.
  2. Once external sharing has been enabled, go to your site in SharePoint Online and click the gear icon in the top right (next to your profile icon).
  3. From this menu, select Site Permissions. On the "Site Permissions" page, click Advanced permissions settings.
  4. From the top ribbon, select Access Request Settings.
  5. At the top of the resulting page, check the following boxes:
    • Allow members to share the site and individual files and folders.
    • Allow members to invite others to the site members group, [group name] Members. (This setting must be enabled to allow members to share the site.)
