viewer uploader edit file name
Would like to explore a custom permission level - between Viewer-Uploader and Editor, which would have all of the Viewer-Uploader rights, as well as the ability to "Edit File Name".
The use case for this is the following - some users upload documents to a folder, but then need to be able to rename the documents. Renaming the documents before upload isn't an option due to specific workflow constraints. Giving Editor permission is not an option as there's been negative experiences with users accidentally moving or deleting customer folders.
In honor of a colleague who has fought the same ordeal for years.
*[Editor]Privileges can be mishandled, and administrators don't like to use them.
To begin with, there seems to be a discrepancy between the interpretation of the "cannot rename" specification and the actual functionality.
I believe that only single file renames should be restricted, and that alias uploads should be excluded from the restriction.
Just following up, is there plans to take a look at this functionality soon. What can be do to get this going?
I would add, users not being able to add descriptions along with title changes in viewer Uploader is a real issue.
Edit rights have multiple consequences and increase risk.
