Microsoft 365 - Getting Started with User and Service Account Permissions

Office 365 accounts have the ability to provide permissions to other accounts allowing them to access data in the account.

Important: To better understand the permission levels in Office 365, please see Microsoft 365 - Mail and Calendar folder permission levels.

This document will provide you with the basic information you will need to either grant permissions to other users or use permissions granted to you by other users.

Due to a known issue that permission levels can sometimes vary across clients, please be sure that you are consistently setting permissions levels in a single client, and preferably the same client as those you are interacting with.

Granting Permissions

Note: If you are intending to provide permissions for a NetID account to a service account, you also have the option to use the linking feature: Microsoft 365 - Getting Started with Linking Accounts.

Using Permissions

Note: Please wait 24 hours after setting/changing/configuring resource permissions before attempting to utilize those permissions, as it may take time for those permissions to take effect.
