"Together" security access management
The Together portal structure is built to ensure the right management per site. With this configuration, you can easily define who can administrate, contribute & read per site. For instance, as an HR manager, you will have access to all HR hub features in one click.
The Together intranet use the standard SharePoint permissions groups:
- Members (=contributors)
- Visitors (=standard users)
Usually, you'll have one or more site owners, a relatively small number of members who create and contribute to the content on the site, and a large number of visitors who are the people you're sharing information with.
You can give people permissions to the site by adding individual users, security groups, or Microsoft 365 groups to one of the three SharePoint groups. (Nested security groups can cause performance issues and are not recommended.)
The "visitors" group is an excellent place to use security groups. This is the easiest way to add large numbers of users to a site in many organizations.
