It is possible to set write access for a group to a folder even if they only have read access to the folder above.

The tool access for the Document tool will be the maximum access allowed for a specific group.

Hi Joachim,

Thanks for your feedback. We are investigating this and your feedback is valuable for us. I understand that it is frustrating for you to have the access rights in your project affected in an unpredictable way.

I will let you know later this week what we plan to do about it.

Best regards,
Karolina

Hello

Now this issue is urgent.
Earlier it was possible to give a group Read access to a folder and the Write access to a sub folder.
I my project this have been used frequently.
An example.
Persons in a group are working with documentation of a delivery.
There is a main folder created for this delivery, i.e. a Turbine.
They shall have Read access to all the folders with documents. We have created a Subfolder for this group to work in and thus they need Write access.
Whit the resent change I have to give all users Read access and this cannot be allowed.

I also need to be able to give Read or Write access to a sub folder to groups that don’t have access to the parent folder. This fetcher was available before but is now closed. During the two years this project has been running we have built up workflows according to the system functionality. By changing this some workflows are disabled. The access controls to the documents are now useless. I would accept this functionality if I were a new user but changing during a project is not acceptable.
