    Usually we break permission at folder level (~20) and add custom SharePoint group, so only certain set of user have access to specify folder in the library.

    For which I have to manually break permissions on each folder and then configure permission accordingly.

    Having this feature, I can configure permission in the sharegate itself.

    I would love to have this. Too often I have the need to fix / edit permissions. Being able to select numerous folders (or files) and edit permissions to the same group / enable or disable inheritance.

    Current can only be done one item at a time and propagated down

    this is still a requirement for us - we are NOT on O365
    - but we bought another tool that does it -- so not urgent

    Ability to select multiple Folders in a Document Library (or even files) and mange the Share Permissions.

    Eg, Selecting multiple folders, stopping inheritance, then change the share permission.

    Thank you Jean-Philippe. We would love to see management options at the folder level, not just the library level. This is significant for us because we have OneDrives and Sites that are large - very large that issue 503s because SharePoint (Azure) EDGE kills the long running request as a threat to the Office 365 infrastructure's performance. Granularity would allow us to get much smaller requests to manage things like permissions for instance in large libraries and beat the 5 minute timeout limits set by Microsoft.

    It would be really useful to be able to break permission inheritance on library folders. In my setup, we have around 10 top-level folders in each library, which I have to manually break permissions on each time I create a new library.

    Also, generally to be able to use library level functions on folders would be very helpful (during migrations, for example).

    Feedback sent from the Options view.

    There's multiple folders under a library and want to set unique permission for each. Am I able to do it using the tool?
