Beezy launches a new feature for their Social SharePoint application Extended Groups. Extended groups are a simple way to allow external access and grant access to external people to any existing group while providing a security framework to avoid compromising any corporate information.
How does it work?
When an external collaborator is required to access the group, he is invited to sign-in through a web form (Form Based Authentication). He now can access the group and starts sharing and collaborating as any other user. A warning message is displayed at several points of the interaction informing users that external people are now accessing the information of the group and a customizable policy link is available to make the rules clear.
