Receive a link to a SharePoint folder which someone has sent to you
This article will walk you through the steps to receive access to a SharePoint folder someone sent you from their SharePoint library. This folder is meant specifically for you and will require you to enter a code sent to you in another email to verify your access to open/download it.
To follow the steps in this article you must have received an email with a link (URL) to a SharePoint library folder. The email will look something like this:
Receive access to a SharePoint library folder
NOTES: These steps are shown to receive access to the folder on a Windows 10 computer, but you can follow the same steps on a Mac or Windows 11 computer (though the screens will vary slightly).
Once you close the browser window, you will need to click the link in your email, and generate/enter the code again to regain access.
If you have questions about this, please let us know and we will be happy to assist you.
