Experts,
We use Sharepoint 2013 online. I have hired an outside developer to do some custom site work for us.
I didn't consider how to give this person access, and now need some guidance.

The site is an internal intranet site. I assume he cannot simply access the site and will need some level of authentication. Do I need to add him into AD?  trying to avoid full domain access if possible.

Hi there,

This luckily can be an easy configuration. SharePoint Online currently allows you to share the site with an external user by having them login using a LiveID. Check out this Microsoft page with some guidelines...
