The issue you are facing:
I understand the groupfolders feature is to not require making shared service accounts to collaboratively manage folders. One issue I have, is that if a member of the group managing a groupfolder shares a subfolder, then other members can see that it is shared and to whom, but can’t e.g., remove the share or edit the permissions. This is in conflict with the idea that groupfolder group members can collaboratively manage the folder and a separate management account wouldn’t be needed.
Steps to replicate it:
- Groupfolder X, managed by group G, with members A and B
- B creates a subfolder in X, and shares it with a user U.
- User A can see that the folder is shared with U, but can not remove the share or see whether U has read only permissions or perhaps create and delete as well.
That the shares within a groupfolder are personal is problematic. What if user B leaves the company after step 2 above?
