Hello and happy holidays!
I worked with the Office365 integration a lot this past week, flipping the switches & pressing the buttons, as it were. Then late Friday afternoon, my fellow team member received an e-mail from someone at a different institution requesting access to one of our test files.
As we were working in a private course, this immediately brings a flurry of questions up. This external person helpfully supplied us with information - including the fact that he could edit documents in a second testing site, without actively being given access by the course instructor (me).
I checked my Office365 access requests (https://[my institution info here]/Access%20Requests/pendingreq.aspx) and found nearly a dozen external user invitations, with the permission "contribute" sent out, to people that I do not know.
This is extremely strange, does anyone else have something similar to report, or is there an Office365 expert that can shed some light on this situation? I am not an Office365 expert by ANY stretch of the imagination, so perhaps I left a virtual door open without knowing it.
I won't be in the office until 2017, but I would be extremely glad to know if anyone else has this issue, or a solution for me.
