This is an aggressively bad way to manage permissions of shared subfolders. At the moment the permissions for subfolders of a shared folder are set by, and inherited from the root shared folder. This is fantastic as a default behaviour but there is no ability to change the permissions of said Subfolders. The options above are beyond unfriendly to Admins.
As an example: I have a shared folder, "Shared-Service" with 4 Subfolders. 2 Subfolders are for customer environment logins, and 2 Subfolders are for Administrative Tools.
Shared-Service (Permissions = IT, Developers, Support) Customer Environment 1 (Inherited Permissions IT, Dev, Sup) Item 1 Item 2 Item 3 Customer Environment 2 (Inherited Permissions IT, Dev, Sup) Item 1 Item 2 Item 3 Admin Items 1 (Inherited Permissions IT, Dev, Sup) Item 1 Item 2 Item 3 Admin Items 2 (Inherited Permissions IT, Dev, Sup) Item 1 Item 2 Item 3
Let's say I wanted to remove the permissions for the Support User Group to access the folders Admin Items 1 and remove Support and Developers from Admin Items 2.....because I do want to do this. Using the available 'OpTIoNS' I can either :
Just allow us to manage the permissions on subfolders like you do with the top level shared folders. Enable the same 'Manage Shared Folder' popup window on Shared Subfolders as I would on it's top-level Shared Folder.
