Thanks for the information. It is very helpful as I look to reconfigure our TS for use with 10.5.1.
Do you know if the developers are looking at other permissionings within the folder structure beyond 10.5.1? I'm specifically looking for them to add the following abilities:
- Locked sub-folders
- Publishing rights only within sub-folders, not the parent folder as well
In case Tableau developers are looking at this, here's why:
- Our Marketing umbrella has about 12 different groups, each with their own folder currently
- Each folder uses AD-groups for permissions such that only members of that specific marketing group can access their group-specific workbooks
- Each folder has one or more publishers just for that Marketing group
- We also have folders in which all of Marketing can access
It would be nice to have:
- One Marketing folder (primary)
- Workbooks available to all of marketing are then stored here
- Sub-folders within the primary would then allow each marketing department their own space for their own workbooks
- Publishers for each space would only be able to publish to their specific spaces, not the area where all of Marketing can get to -- that should be the role of the primary project owner/publisher, not a sub-folder owner/publisher
- Locked sub-folders would allow the sub-folder owners to dictate which AD-groups have permissions and allow workbooks published to the sub-folders take on the permissions of the sub-folder, not the primary (since not everyone with access to the primary should be able to view a workbook in a sub-folder).

Thanks, Mark. I've voted up for these ideas. We will likely forego using nested folders in many cases until permission options available are more in line with our business.
