OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Development Services
From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC428259 · Published Sep 9, 2022
We are adding new policies to Request Files & Anyone links to better enable customers to configure sharing in their tenant to match their specific needs & scenarios. With this change, customers who have chosen to disable Anyone links for OneDrive will now be able to enable Anyone links for just the Request Files feature.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 98097
When this will happen:
Standard Release (if applicable): We will begin rolling out in late September and expect to complete by late October.
How this will affect your organization:
Today, when Anyone links are disabled for OneDrive, the Request Files feature is also disabled and unavailable. With this change, it will be possible to enable the Request Files feature (which uses Anyone links) without also enabling standard Anyone links for other files & folders. Customers who wish to manage these two features together will continue to do so with no changes.
What you need to do to prepare:
This change will roll out in two waves. In the first wave, which will rollout in early September, customers will be able to use the SharePoint Online Management Shell to enable the Request Files feature even when Anyone Links are disabled. You must download the latest verison of the SPO Management Shell to access this new parameter. To set this up, you will run
Set-SPOTenant -OneDriveRequestFilesLinkEnabled $true. Note that changing this setting at this time will have no impact until the second wave of this feature rolls out in late September/October. This wave will cause the Request Files feature to look at the new setting to determine whether or not it is enabled. To learn more about the PowerShell parameters, you can read the documentation on Set-SPOTenant and Set-SPOSite. Please note that you will need to download SharePoint Online Management Shell version 16.0.22516.12000 or later.
If you are not interested in changing this setting, there will be no change in availability of Request Files or Anyone links, either now, or when this feature finishes rolling out.
