Copy permissions between users

Copy permissions between users

It would be very helpful to be able to copy the access permissions from one user to another one. For example, I have a new user coming in to replace a current user and the new user will need access to the same folders as the old user (with the same permission levels). The old user has access to over 90 different folders so I need to go one by one to do this which is time consuming and prone to errors. I could use a group for this but currently permissions are very granular.

Hi Claudio,

We appreciate your suggestion. It does sound interesting and sensible with the use case you have explained. I will pass on your suggestions to the Product Team to consider and see in what fashion is this doable.

Currently, we only have a way to copy folder templates, but nothing for permissions as such.

An employee requests to transfer ownership of all files and his/her folder permission to another employee. The current workaround is to run a permission report and manually assign folder access one folder at a time.
