Microsoft has rolled out a change to permissions. You can now decentralise adding users to sites.
While this is all well and fine, doesn’t this defeat the object of having a Site Owner permission group? The practical application of this setting is not clear in Mrs Google that I can see and the wording in SharePoint is misleading. Not great from a governance perspective, I don’t find this to be a sensible change at this point…
I hear you…. Fixing something that wasn’t broken.
Very peculiar indeed, so now we will have to highlight that feature just to say “why would you enable this?” 😦
I know right, I just don’t get this one…. The “just share externally” thing was bad enough. No-one I know has that activated on their platforms, they all turned it off. Now this? Bizarre…
Whoa! Sure would be nice to know the logic behind that change / decision.
