Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions

Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions

Hi, I would love to have a feature to replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from the object (similar to Windows advanced permissions). This way, if I want to force a specific folder and all sub-folders/files with a specific permission, it can be done quickly.

Agreed, need to be able to force propagate parent folder permissions to all folders/files within that parent folder.

@Josh Leung and @Brent Johnson1 - are you asking for a feature where you can replace all of the permissions underneath a folder with the permissions of the current folder, or are you asking about doing for just a single permission, e.g. John Smith should have Editor access on this folder and everything below it.

A feature to replace all of the permissions of subfolders/files with the parent folder and forcing all of the subfolders/files to be inheriting permissions from that current folder and nothing else.
