Shared folder's access and edit rights

Shared folder's access and edit rights

A way to have multiple shared folders edit rights to be changed at once for example or through a different location - a more direct approach.

A more efficient way to make changes to shared folders for a team in a business plan.

Hey @ella--bruce, thanks for posting!

 

Just some clarifications; are you referring to changing permissions for folders when the same people are accessing them?

 

If so, a workaround would be to include all these folders within a parent folder and then share the parent folder instead.

 

If you're not talking about the same users, can you let us know how you'd expect to be able to do this? Using a CSV file, for example?

 

Any additional info would be helpful.

 

Thanks!

I think it can work with CSV file but also some sort of dropdown list, because right now when you want to change permissions there is a new window that opens, and it usually takes a long time to modify especially if I want to change a large amount of folders permissions. 

I use the desktop app on Mac and it works slowly, even on the web it doesn't work smoothly and it takes a lot more clicks than it should to see who can access the folder.
