External Sharing From Groups SharePoint Online Site

My global SharePoint settings are to "Allow sharing to authenticated external users and using anonymous access links".

However, when trying to share docs from SharePoint online where the site has been created as part of an Office 365 Group, users are not allowed to share. 

Any ideas?

Hi 8DWDW8,

Please note that, by default, all SharePoint site collections that are part of an Office 365 Group have the sharing setting set to Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organizations directory. To change this setting, you can use the Set-SPOSite Windows PowerShell cmdlet.

Set-SPOSite -Identity https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/site1-SharingCapability ExternalUserAndGuestSharing

 

Note: Before you run the cmdlet, please make sure the sharing settings in the SharePoint admin center has been set to "Allow sharing to authenticated external users and using anonymous access links".

Moreover, you can refer to the following article to install and connect to SharePoint Online PowerShell:

Connect to SharePoint Online PowerShell

If that doesn’t help, please share the detailed steps about how you reproduced the issue and provide a screenshot of the issue symptom.
 

Thanks,
Felix

Try opening the Team Site directly, not via the Files link. I.e. press the "go to site" link in the top right corner or open it directly via https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/Team/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx
