    Hi Katherine, 

    Welcome to the Box Community!

    Permissions in Box always follow our waterfall permission model. This means that when you add a user to a parent folder that same level of access is automatically inherited by all of the sub folders that exist in the structure at the time you add the user, as well as to any new folders that get created there later on. There is not a way of changing this behavior in Box at present.

    There are other Sharing feature that you can use if you just need to collect documents from others without inviting them to be a collaborator in a folder such as using "File Request link" (even those who doesn't have a Box account can use it to send you documents). To learn more about this feature, please take a look at these support articles:

    Hope this information helps!
