    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?
