We're looking to radically change our file structure as we have a new outsourced user for our business.
Teams folders are a godsend, we can restrict access where needed, but it's a bit labour intensive as we have a lot of folders and create quite a few too for new clients etc. At the moment the new user will be going into a seperate group to the rest of us, that group will then be given access to certain folders and sub-folders, but what I've discovered is if I create a new sub-folder in a folder she has access to, she will automatically get access to it and we then have to remember to go and revoke that access.
Is there a better way of doing this? The structure is pretty simple like this
Client Folder (She has access)
Client 1 (She has access)
Client 2 (she doesn't have access)
Client 3 (New folder, from testing she would automatically have access as soon as it's created and we would need to manually revoke this access)
I've tried not giving the group access to the Client Folder at the top, but still giving the group access to the Client 1 Sub Folder but then the group can't see any of those folders.
Hi @Lusil thanks for the reply. Just for clarity, if I add someone to a sub-folder, but not to the top folder (in team folder) they should be able to view that sub folder? We tried earlier and they couldn't view it.
We have so many folders it's extremely risky to add someone to the top folder and then remember to remove them from a new sub folder when it's created.
