How can I change permissions for multiple folders at the same time?

Chris Cook

In the EPDM Administration tool you can't.  You can open the permissions for multiple groups, but can only select a single folder at a time to change.  The sub-folders will inherit the changes, but folders at the same level or in different areas of the vault cannot be changed at the same time.

There is a HawkWare product called EPDM Folder Permissions Editor that allows this type of folder permissions editing.  It isn't free, but it could save you a great deal of time and effort if you heavily leverage project templates that also apply permissions.  It works on both Group and User folder permissions.

On a related note, the Move File and Move Folder permissions introduced in Enterprise PDM 2015 are unchecked after upgrading from a previous major version.
