Hi I work at a charity organisation with 25 different marketing silos who break their folder structure up by year. Each folder has its own unique Plans, Programmes, Folders, Deliveries. Lists, Campaign and Delivery templates. Each with their own respective permissions.
Every year we will need to setup new folders for these teams with all the permissions and sub directories. This is really time consuming to setup and quality check.
Does anyone know a super quick way of doing this or is it literally going to be a painstaking job every single year?
I have subsequently created the folder structures manually. The fastest method I've found thus far is to manually create each folder but using keyboard shortcuts to create lists, folders, generic folders, personalisation blocks and campaign/delivery templates.
I'm now working on a workflow that updates permissions from a CSV. Has anyone done this before? I've calculated that I will need to ensure that 35,000 tick boxes are ticked/unticked. Which is quite a laborious task.
You could probably try exporting your folder structure in a package and manipulate it's XML contents, then import new structure. At least, everything you see in Console is actually an XML. For example, Lists folder with some rights on it is described as follow:
