Allow Power Users to create folders

0 Votes

As simple as it sounds. I'd like to see the ability to let certain power users create folders in the root Shared directory.


Hi Jeff, We've given control explicitly to admins for managing the root Shared folder.  This helps protect the integrity of your company's overall file structure. 

In addition, we also allow only admins to create folders in the root Shared for security measures.  If Power Users were given permission to modify folders in the root Shared by an admin, the Power User would have those permissions propagated through all Shared folders the same way permissions propagate to subfolders.  To protect admins from accidently granting a power user access to all company files, Egnyte ensures only admins have Shared root permissions.

looks like there is a way to do this with custom roles and granting the "can create top-level folders" right.
