Manage Access inconsistencies with Microsoft and Office365

Manage Access inconsistencies with Microsoft and Office365

In my day job, as a SharePoint and Office365 consultant, I now find that I keep having to revise previously-issued advice because Microsoft keep changing the code and what the user is expected to do, without actually telling anyone.

On Friday, we saw that the Manage Access function for documents wasn’t quite working, because it wouldn’t tell you who you had given access to:

So we had to revise our documentation, because it was a fairly useless feature. No point trying to figure out who you’re sharing a document with if you can’t actually see the names.

Fast-forward to Monday morning, and it’s changed so you *can* see who you’ve shared a document with.

Nice change, Microsoft, but you could have just released that function when it was working to begin with…
