Hi,

When creating a new team in Teams and adding members (also external clients) is it possible to prevent some users (mostly the external users from seeing an accessing a doc lib folder and it contents?

lets say you have a teams Team for every project and you have added a the customer to the team as a guest. You record your profits in an excel in a folder in that doc lib. Can we exclude that folder for the external users, and even a few lower level colleagues of ours?

    Hi @Bart De Keyser ,

    In SharePoint online you could set unique permission for folder or files by "Manage access" option.

    1.Select your folder > click the ellipsis button > Manage access

    3.Click Stop Inheriting Permissions then you could set folder unique permission grant or remove user permission.
