Set folder permission by group

Note: This article reflects the Groups functionality released in January 2016. Please see Visibility of information in your project for current functionality. 

Set folder permission by group

On new and migrated Firmex projects, you can set folder permission by group. To do so:

  1. In Firmex, click Documents.
  2. On the left side of the Documents page, right-click the folder whose permissions you want to change, and select Set Permission.
  3. Find the group whose permissions you want to change. Change the group's Content Role from the Content Role pull-down next to the group's name. For example, to hide the folder from a group, select the No Access content role. 
  4. Click Apply to Folder to apply the change to the selected folder, or Apply to Folder & Subfolders for the change to apply to the selected folder and all of its subfolders. 

Please see the Hiding folders and documents from users article for instructions on setting permissions on folders and documents by user.
