How To Share Site Page With Other Users On SharePoint Online

This article is about how to share site pages in SharePoint. Here, I am showing for SharePoint 2016 and online. The steps, which I am doing here, are the similar steps which will be followed for other versions of SharePoint as well, so we will have a small description of the steps that are used to share the site pages for SharePoint.
For example, as per customer requirement, we have created a site and this site is default, which can be only accessed for the admin or user who has created the same. For other user's access, we need to give them permission and we need to share the site.
If we are not sharing and the user will try to access it, the site will get an error saying “you don’t have permission to access this site. Please contact administrator” or “Sorry this site hasn’t been shared with you”.
Thus, here we go step by step to configure the same
  • We have created a project sub site and this is the site that I am going to share with the existing users.

We can share the site outside of the organization as well. We will be writing about the same in the next article.
  • Now, try to access the same site with the user account, which is not shared with the same. We will be getting the error, as shown below.

  • Now, we will share this site with the user, who is existing in the organization.
  • To do the same, we will go back to the site, where we can share the option on the top of the page.
  • Here, just click on the share button and it will pop up to share the site or sub site.

  • Here, we need to enter the user name with whom we need to share. It will automatically find the user, and click on show options to select a group or permission level.

  • Just click OK to share the same with the user account and go back to the client user and try to access the site.
Here, we can see it shared with the users list by clicking Shared with option from the left side of the screen.
  • Now, result is given below. Now, we are able to access the same.

For SharePoint Online, we need to have user account on the users and groups as well.
  • Add the user from an admin page of SharePoint Online Office 365.
  • After adding, go back to the site with the appropriate user Id and password. Click Share option, as done previously.

  • Once everything is done, share with the user from Share button and add the user. Also, select permission level which defines default.

  • Now, try to access this site from the added user account and we will get the result.
