If you choose to Share a file with someone “outside” of BCPS (this includes a CAB staff member not in
Outlook) make sure you REMOVE the check mark from “Require sign-in”. If you leave the check mark
they will be required to sign in with a Microsoft account.
Things to do in this area:
Invite People
Assign Can Edit or Can View permissions
Type a message
Require sign-in
Send an email invitation (if you don’t see this click SHOW OPTIONS)
Sharing is the same for folders as it is for files except for one item… There is no
check mark to remove ‘Require sign-in.
Remember you can share files and folders with anyone in and outside of BCPS. When sharing a file
or single document you must remove the check mark in the “Require sign-in”. This by-passes the
need for an outside contact to need a Microsoft account.
However, If you want to share a folder with a recipient outside of the school system… they must
have a Microsoft account in order to access your folder.
