The SharePoint online permissions report gives you the full picture of your shared files, folders, Teams, and external domains in seconds.
Review files and folders

Our SharePoint permissions reporting tool also lets you manage external permissions across the entire organization. Manually or automatically: The choice is yours.
Revoke specific permissions directly from the SharePoint report. Filter and sort by external users, domains, Teams, files, and folders to perform targeted changes.
Set up custom rules to perform regular SharePoint permissions cleanup in the background. Define what to clean up and how often.
Involve your internal users by sending automated cleanup reminders. Customize email scheduling frequency, age of files/folders/team, and more.
SharePoint vs. Tricent
While SharePoint offers native tools to audit and manage permissions, they have limitations:
- No shared top-level overview
In SharePoint native reports it’s not possible to get a complete overview of your organization’s total shared files, folders, and Teams. Tricent does.
- No clear insights into external permissions
External users may belong to multiple groups with varying permissions. SharePoint doesn’t provide an easy way to review and revoke external permission. Tricent does.
- No support for bulk cleanup
SharePoint doesn’t support bulk cleanup for external users, domains, files, folders, and Teams. Tricent does.
- No auditing filters in SharePoint
Getting visibility into which files, folders, and Teams are shared externally, don’t have an owner, or have been shared with a specific domain is cumbersome. Not with Tricent.
- No automated cleanup
Permissions reporting and management within SharePoint have to be manually initiated by an admin. This makes the task increasingly unmanageable in larger organizations.
- No rollback options
Say some files, folders or Teams accidentally got unshared. No problem, restore all sharing permissions in just one click.
Tricent’s SharePoint permissions reporting tool gives you clear insights and a simple way to manage permissions at scale, across your entire organization.

Always be on top of data shared outside the organization through audit logs, insights, and dashboards.
Why should you regularly check and update SharePoint permissions?
SharePoint permissions need be reviewed regularly in order to ensure strong data protection standards (GDPR, CCPA, etc.). Unmonitored permissions could be considered a severe security and compliance issue that could lead to financial and reputational consequences.
What are the risks of unmonitored permissions?
With unmonitored permissions there’s the risk of compromised files, data leaks, data theft, security breaches, non-compliance penalties, insider trading, and much more. All of which could cause damage to your organization.
How often should you audit your permissions?
We recommend to perform frequent audits, but especially when there are critical changes in your environment; for example, mergers & acquisitions, partnerships, data protection regulations, or cyber incidents.
