image You can use Windows PowerShell to turn external sharing on or off. Using the SharePoint Online Management Shell, administrators can now enforce new controls over how external users accept invitations.

This blog entry is written (as an exception!) in German because people in English speaking countries shouldn't have this problem! Es geht hier um die richtigen Spracheinstellungen (im Browser und im online Bestelldialog) damit die SharePoint Sites in der richtigen Sprache und damit mit den richtigen Library- und Listennamen angelegt werden und nachträglich nicht Probleme mit Umlauten entstehen!
