How does the Doc Set permissions work.I have created a some document sets which i have assigned unique users to and then added some files under the document set. I taught with this approach users would only see there folder in the document set as i have locked the document set/folder with unique permissions but it seems users cant see the files under the document sets and no access to files.

Any ideas

There is a great video by RackSpace on Document Sets, and how they're used. The clear difference is that with a Document Set, you can create a workflow around the Document Set and you can have separate workflows against the documents within the Document Set. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV2h3z4mLC0

  • just a note: be sure that documents are checked in for this will keep people from seeing the documents even though they have permission. Mar 30, 2015 at 0:38
  • The docs are all checked in. Is it possible to have a workflow on a document set that would run to assign read permissions to all files in a document set?
