Enhanced Assignment of Explicit Folder Permission

SOLIDWORKS PDM lets you set explicit folder permissions on multiple folders at the same time.

Previously, you could set explicit permissions on one selected folder at a time.

On the Assigned Folder Permissions tab, to select multiple folders, do one of the following:

  • Shift + click
  • Ctrl + select
  • Left-drag

The Folder Permissions area displays the assignable permissions. The status of check box changes as the folder permission assigned to selected folder changes.

Check box status Description
(Selected) Permission is set to all selected folders.
(Green) Permission is set to one or more selected folders, but not all.
(Cleared) Permission is not set to any selected folder.
