Change to Permissions in Office 365

(Posted to new blog first)

Microsoft has rolled out a change to permissions.  You can now decentralise adding users to sites.

Office 365 Permissions 1

Office 365 Permissions 2

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…

  2. Very peculiar indeed, so now we will have to highlight that feature just to say “why would you enable this?” 😦

  3. 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…
