Restrict Document Folder Access

Grant and restrict document folder access by role or user group.

Document folders and sub-folders can be accessed or restricted to any Role or User Group. This page details how to grant/revoke document folder access.


Please review what is/is not possible to accomplish in terms of Folder and Document restriction permissions:

You Can You Cannot
  • Grant/restrict access by Role and User Groups. However, you cannot restrict an individual user from accessing a folder. 
  • Create specific groups of users you know will need to access folders and documents. This can be done in Admin > User Groups if your permissions allow you to do so. 
  • Restrict access to a sub-folder. Parent and sub-folder permissions can be configured separately and can contain different Roles and User Groups.
  • Grant folder access to a single user. This is done through the Add Assignment function on the Document Folder Details page. 
  • Restrict access to a single document within a folder. If a role or user group has access to a folder, then they have access to all contents of that folder.
