  • Site Owners - full control
  • Site Members - limited control
  • Site Visitors - no control

Steps to share SharePoint Site

  1. Open the SharePoint Site on a web browser,
    https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com/sites/<site-name>
  2. Look for the share button at the top right and click on it,
    SharePoint Site Share button
  3. Now add the user or group that you want to share,
  4. By default an email will be sent to the user/group and you can type an optional custom message as well,
  5. Click share button

⛏️ If the site does not belong to you but you have access to it, you can still add people but will need approval from the site owner.

⛏️ You can either add users, a Microsoft 365 groups, or security groups.
