Enabling and Using Complex Permissions

You can now customize User Permissions by folder!

Need to give a user different roles per folder? Introducing Complex Permissions! (Note: This feature is only available for the Professional subscription and higher.)

For example, you can give a user (or group) the role of "Standard" for one folder and "Read Only" in others.  This means the user could modify data in the folders that they have a Standard role and would not have that capability in the folders where they have a Read Only role.
