M365 Changelog: SharePoint – External File Request in SharePoint Document Library
MC495329 – With File Request feature in SharePoint Document Library, users have an easy and secure way to request and obtain files from anyone. Users can choose a folder in SharePoint Document Library where others can upload files using a link that is shared with them. Users you request files from can only upload files; they can’t see the content of the folder, edit, delete, or download files, or even see who else has uploaded files.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 103625
When this will happen:
Preview: Microsoft will begin rollout in late January 2023 and expect to complete rollout by early February 2023.
GA: Microsoft will begin rollout in early February 2023 and expect to complete rollout by late February 2023.
How this will affect your organization:
If the administrator has enabled file request (and Anyone links) at the tenant level, file request feature will be available to users within the tenant. Admins can use SharePoint Online Management Shell to enable or disable the Request Files feature for SharePoint sites.
What you need to do to prepare:
To use this feature in the SharePoint Document Library:
- Admin should enable Anyone links at the tenant level
- Admin has configured view, edit, and upload permission for Anyone links
