SharePoint Online - Can a new user also be automatically granted the Visitor access to the Site while receiving a link for a specific page, file or library?
This is regarding SharePoint Online, user permission on site-level & file-level. I was directed from the Microsoft Community as Power Automate may be of help here.
The current scenario & inconvenience is:
When a site Member shares a file (via Share in a document library) with an internal, new user who has no access to the parent site previously - the Site Owner (my client) receives an access request to be granted to that specific file
The new user needs to ask for the site-level access additionally = creating work for the Site Owner
The desired scenario / flow would be:
A site Member shares a file (via Share in a document library) with an internal, new user: when the Site Owner approves the new user's access to the file,the new user also automatically gets Visitor access to the parent site= to decrease a lot of 'limited access' tagged libraries = easier overview and user access control
Does this permission workflow requires out-of-box customisation as a SP Administrator? Or is there an existing workaround that you may suggest?
Thanks a lot for your attention and help in advance!
