You can update the default permissions applied to new folders and update permissions in bulk to folders. To manage default folder permissions, you’ll use permission sets in Classic Account Admin, which are a collection of group and user level permissions.
To learn more about folder permissions, see Set Folder Permissions.
About permission sets
As you work with folder permissions in a workspace, you'll use permission sets to help manage defaults. There are a few things to keep in mind as best practices as you use groups and permission sets:
- Do not remove users from the all users group.
- Do not set the all users group to none for the default permissions sets.
If you need to change the default permissions so that the all users group is none, remove the All Users group from the default permission sets.
Update folder and file permissions
If you have owner permissions to all the files and subfolders in a folder, you can update permissions for multiple items in that folder from the Folder and Files option.
To open a matrix view of your files and their permissions:
- From Files or Home, right-click a folder.
- From Permissions, select Folder and Files.
This view shows a list of all the files in your folder, including any subfolders and their files.
To edit permissions on an individual section of a file, right-click the file and select Section Permissions.
You can also open a file by right-clicking the file name and selecting Open.
