How To Set SharePoint Online User Permissions

When you create a new user in SharePoint Online, until you assign the user permissions the user will get this error when they try to access the SharePoint site:

Error: Access Denied

Current User
You are currently signed in as: user
Sign in as a different user

To assign SharePoint permissions in SharePoint Online:

  1. Log in as an administrative user
  2. Click Site Actions at the top left of the SharePoint site
  3. Click Site Settings
  4. Click Site permissions
  5. Then add the new user to the SharePoint groups to give them the type of access they require

The user will then have to log off SharePoint Online before the permissions will take effect.
