Invite external parties

On the new SharePoint environment, you can invite external parties to access your SharePoint site.

To invite a third party to your SharePoint site, there are three conditions:

  1. The email address of the person to whom you wish to give access must be registered. (via the "Invite external user" link on homepage
  2. Your SharePoint site is located on the new SharePoint environment. (On SharePoint sites starting with "" you can NOT invite external users.)
  3. You must set the user access rights to your site at SharePoint.

You can use the self-service tool to request a new site on the new SharePoint environment or you can contact the helpdesk to request a migration of your existing project site.
