Managing unique permissions over multiple sub folders

Copper Contributor



I have a large document library with many folders and levels.  I want to apply a permission structure from the library down to a certain point of sub folder.  From there I want all sub folders to inherit permissions from the last level I have assigned.



1.  Is it possible to quickly force all sub folders to inherit permissions from a folders I choose, without manually going into each one and deleting unique permissions.

2. Is it possible to add a column to the view in the library, which will show me if a folder has unique permissions or not.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Both you asks are not possible out of the box.

Unless you break inheritance, by default items inherit from parent permissions. So, at last level by default every item under that will inherit from your last level. No need to do anything special for that.
