If you have an Enterprise account, you can take advantage of advanced folder management features, including folder-specific permissions.
When an account Contributor (Can edit) on an Enterprise account is added to a folder as a part of a group that only has Viewer access, the Contributor will likewise only have viewing permissions to that folder unless they are also given Contributor access to the folder as an individual.
However, if they are added to a folder as part of a group that has Can edit access, they will then have editing permissions.
⚠️Note: If you add a Contributor to a folder that has subfolders, the team member will also have access to the contents of the subfolders.
'Can manage' Folder permission
Team owners and admins can appoint contributors to have 'Can manage' permissions of specific folders in the team account. To give a team member 'Can manage' acccess, follow these steps:
- From the Library, select the folder.
- Open the folder share modal in the upper right section of the folder page.
- Either type in a new team member's name and set their permission as Can manage, then click Send invite, or...
- Alternatively, find an existing team member in the folder and click their role to open the dropdown menu and select Can manage. The role change will save automatically.
Changing a team member's permissions from 'Can edit' to 'Can manage' will grant the team member permission to delete any videos within the folder from the team account, as well as permission to invite other team members to the folder.
A Contributor (Can edit) can be assigned to the 'Can manage' role in the main folder or in a subfolder. When a Contributor is assigned the 'Can manage' role in a top-level folder, they will also have admin permissions in all of the subfolders that live within that folder and can create new subfolders. But when a Contributor is assigned the 'Can manage' role in a subfolder, they will only have admin permissions in that particular subfolder. Members with 'Can manage' access will have access to creating and deleting subfolders.
