Hi SharePoint community.  I think I know the answer to this one, but it never hurts to ask!  I'm reviewing how we, as an organisation, manage records from employee appraisals.  I'd love to suggest a SharePoint solution where we create a folder for each employee and they and everyone more senior in their line management hierarchy (as defined in AAD) also has access.  This is obviously fairly simple to set up manually, but also quite time-consuming.

 

I therefore thought I'd ask if anyone has any bright ideas as to whether it would be possible to automate the setting up of the access controls whenever new recruits start or line management reporting changes.  Hope you're able to help and thanks.
