Box folder permissions when adding new subfolders

New post



  • Rona

    Hi Jacob, 

    Welcome to Box Community and I'm here to help! 

    As of this writing, we don't have an alternate workaround to exclude your newly created sub-folder to the settings already in place from the parent folder.

    My recommendation for the time being is to submit this as a feature request or upvote here and we apologize for the limitation. 

    Thanks for posting!

    It's absolutely mind-blowing that there isn't yet an ability to manage permissions per subfolder. Deviating from a logical and traditional organization of folders, having to make additional parent folders is insane.
