  • Users in the default members/owners group

Users with Edit Permission

This is the simplest configuration. Any user assigned the default Edit permission level for your SharePoint site automatically has permission to access and use the Adobe Sign integration

  • If you used the admin.microsoft.com utilities to create your SharePoint site and assigned Owners, Members, and Visitors to the group, you are done

    • That Office365 group is added as a member to the SharePoint group of the same name allowing access to be controlled from central place.
    • Adding users to the SharePoint site using the modern experience adds members to the Office365 group , “not” to the SharePoint group.

  • Open the settings panel from the gear menu on the top bar
  • Select Site permission
    • This opens a new right-hand Permission panel
