I’m sure this is a newbie question but I’ve spend an hour googling and not found an answer. I want to set up a document tree with selective permissions. I’ve created a dedicated user to host the shared documents, and then created some top level directories:
- Client Folders
- Company Documents
Then inside each I want to create subfolders (eg Client A, Client B under Client Folders) that are allocated to individual users or user groups, such that they can only see the subfolders that have been shared with them. However what I find is that if I give everyone access to the “Client Folders” folder for example, they have full permission to everything underneath, regardless of the share status of individual files or folders. Is it not possible to share a root folder, and then selectively share subfolders? And if so, how do I set that up (happy to be pointed to a how-to or formal documentation if there is some).
If I just share the subfolders with my users and not the top level folder, then they have a cluttered root folder with Client A mixed with Payroll subfolders etc and no structure to it.
