Restrict creation of top-level folders on a workspace

As a cabinet administrator, I would like to prevent users from creating top-level folders on a workspace, but still allow users (with appropriate rights) to create subfolders in those folders. While allowing users to create folders along-side the Doc Type filters has its use cases, I want more control over the process. As an admin, I can set which top-level folders I want on the workspace template or through a folder pack, so I don't want just anyone creating 'sibling' folders along side these system-defined folders. What good does it do to define all these template folders as an admin if users can bypass them and create whatever folders they want along side them? I only want to allow user-defined folders to be under the top level folder.

  • I support this idea. A lot of users create their own folder structure inside a workspace.

  • Would different permissions for the workspace and top-level folders not work for this?  Unless you want people to be able to add top-level documents to the workspaces.

  • I could only try to agree more with Russell on this! What is the point of offering the control of workspaces with filters if we allow anyone to bypass it? I force the selection of the document type/filter so at least the documents are where they should be and the folder/s become more of a 'view'.

    With Russell's idea and folder packs, at least some control stays with the administrators.
