I can't wrap my head around how Metadata and permissions levels will play together on my sharepoint library.
When I think of Metadata I think of a flatter folder hierarchy. At least, reducing our very deep folder system is the impetus for instituting metadata. When I think about permissions levels I think about doing it on folders. I would not want to have to set permissions on each individual file. We do have some groups set up so I can assign permission that way.
If I go from a hierarchy with 7 levels of folders, to one with only 4 levels, say, I am imagining files which currently have different permission levels, that would be commingled.
Am I thinking about this correctly? What is the best way to limit permissions on files that are currently in folders but would no longer be once we institute metadata?
