Hide Private folder of Power users

Re: Hide Private folder of Power users

Nicola,

Can you help me better understand your request? Would you want a feature where a power user might have private folders which only he could see (i.e., not even administrators could view), or do you just want the ability to turn-off the private folders so that users below the admin. can't see them?

I would like that administrator can't see Private folders of all users by default, but only if it is necessary.

I also would like that for some users the possibility from administrator to hide/remove Private folder.

Re: Hide Private folder of Power users

OK thanks Nicola.

We are going to be rolling out a new set of features that will allow role-based permissions for administrators. Among other things, this will address your first concern. You'll be able to create multiple tiers of admin users, some of whom will not be able to view every private folder in the system.

We've also been contemplating your second session: disabling private folders for certain users.

Thanks for your input, please subscribe to our announcements so that you can stay up-to-speed on our new features.

We also would like the ability to hide the Private folders from some users. Some of our users will accidentally put items meant to be in the Shared folder in the Private folder instead and then they wonder why nobody can see what they think they've shared.

Re: Hide Private folder of Power users

I see that Trey with Egnyte mentioned back in September about rolling out new features to allow role-based permissions for administrators--inlcuding privae folders being "private" even at the admin level and I was wondering when the anticipated release date will be for this? How will we be notified when this does take place?

Thanks, Stefanie
