    Box is the only system that I have ever encountered that has permission inheritance work up as well as down. Typically, a "child" inherits from the "parent", and not the other way around. This behavior makes it difficult to share files with collaborators without giving them more permissions than they need. E.g., We want everyone to have View rights on a Budget folder, but Edit rights only in the current subfolder. But when we make someone an Editor on the subfolder, they are promoted to an Editor on the parent folder, and every other subfolder. I have brought up this behavior to tech support several times and each time I'm told "that's just the way it works". The workaround of breaking a subfolder out isn't a very efficient solution.
