Maintaining Folder Structure with Subfolder Permissions

Maintaining Folder Structure with Subfolder Permissions

New member | Level 2

Good afternoon,

  I have been reviewing the blogs, previous questions and help files, but I am still uncertain as to whether or not differring security/groups can be applied to folders and subfolders while maintaining folder organisational structures?  We have many folders and subfolders with the same name, which becoming really unusable if a team member has access to multiples of these.  

  Is this functionality that is planned or not?  If so, what is the estimated timeline for release?

Thanks!

Dan

Hi Dan, that feature should already work in the form of groups. By making groups restricted to specific folders, you can prevent other people from even seeing that folder.
