SharePoint – Centralized management for hub visitor permissions

From Microsoft Corporation

MC218789, Stay Informed, Published date: Jul 17, 2020

SharePoint hub permissions enable hub owners to centralize the management of visitor access to associated sites. 

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 65641.

When this will happen

  • We’ll gradually roll this out to Targeted Release customers in early August.
  • We expect to roll out to everyone else in mid-August and complete the rollout by the end of September.

How this will affect your organization

This is an optional feature for both hubs and associated sites which allows for greater viewer access to content and improved discoverability across sites.

After enabling a hub to sync to associated sites, hub owners can specify access by individuals, security groups, or M365 groups.

  • The new visitor permissions will become activated the next time the viewer accesses the hub.
  • Associated site hub owners can disable the sync for sites that need to remain private from the rest of the hub.

What you need to do to prepare

We will not make any automatic changes to hub permissions. This is an optional feature for both hubs and associated sites that must be manually enabled.

  • Hub owners choose to enable syncing hub permissions to associated sites.
  • Then associated sites choose to sync with hub visitor permissions.
