A recent release to the Workiva Platform included improvements to the following products and features:
Existing permissions are now automatically applied to imported Wdata objects
Existing folder permissions are now automatically applied to imported Wdata objects
When importing documents with connections to Wdata, you can upload to a specific folder in the destination workspace. If that folder has existing permissions, they will be automatically applied to the newly imported files -- including Wdata objects such as queries and tables.
Files imported to the default root directory will not be assigned these permissions, meaning only the workspace owner in charge of the import will have access to them.
