When a new parent folder is added, by default, its view, download, and upload access is denied. All parent folders are viewable by admins only until explicitly assigned.
When a new child subfolder is added, by default, it will adopt the view, download, and upload access of its parent folder until explicitly assigned.
Where Can I Set Permissions?
To grant access to folders (and subfolders) and their contents, as well as assign View, Download, and/or Upload permissions, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the Permissions page.
- Select the Non-Admin group to which you’d like to assign folders.
- Click the "Folder Permissions" tab.
- The three columns next to the folder structure illustrate actions allowed for View, Download and Upload.
- A folder with a right facing arrow can be expanded to view its next level of subfolders.
- Permissions can be set for each parent folder/child subfolder by selecting the corresponding permissions row with the parent folder/child subfolder.
- If permissions for a Child folder are Allowed, its parent folder permissions will become Allowed
- If permissions for a Child folder are Denied, its parent folder permissions will NOT become Denied
- If permissions for a Parent folder are Allowed, its children folder permission will become Allowed
- If permissions for a Parent folder are Denied, its children folder permission will become Denied
There are icons for view, download, and upload, as well as icons that indicate whether a permission is allowed or denied. See legend below:
