We are trying to migrate our company to SharePoint, however its becoming very challenging. I will try and explain this as best as I can but our company is a sales driven company. We are made up of 7 different divisions. Each division wants (needs) there own site with a document library. Inside of each of these sites would be a client folder and inside that would be all of the customers they sell to along with pricing lists and other info.
Not everyone needed access to ever client and not everyone needs access to every customer and some people only need access just to the customer folders. However doing custom permissions with folders inside of folders seems rather cumbersome and if someone doesn't have access to the parent folder they wont see the folder unless they have a link to it. Can any one offer any suggestions? The main goal here is not not hire a consultant and not create any crazy out of the box situation but we want users to be able to see there stuff but not see everything. Just not sure how to achieve this.
