Unlocking precision SharePoint sharing: Share pages and news posts individually

In today’s digital age, collaboration and information sharing are at the heart of every successful organization’s operations. SharePoint has long been a go-to platform for businesses seeking to streamline their content management and collaboration efforts, however, there has always been one lingering challenge: sharing content precisely, without exposing more than necessary.

Until now, sharing SharePoint pages and news posts often meant sharing the entire site, potentially exposing sensitive data and cluttering the recipient’s view with unrelated content. But that’s all changing. In this blog post, I’m thrilled to introduce a game-changing feature that promises to transform how you collaborate within SharePoint: the ability to share SharePoint pages and news posts individually, just like you can with other Microsoft 365 files in a document library.
