Use the Folder Properties page to set the properties for a new folder or to update property details for an existing folder. The Folder Properties page is used for top folders as well as for subfolders.
Users can add folders at any level for which they have authorization. Only top administrators can create top folders at the root of a feature’s folder hierarchy. At subsequent levels, any folder members with the proper privilege can add folders.
In this example, as a top administrator for managed content, you will create a top folder within managed content.Step 4

The Approvals field determines the approval mode for the folder:

• Auto-Approved Content. The system automatically marks content as approved.
• Optional Approval. As content is being created, content authors have the option to require approval or to have the content automatically approved.
Note. This setting cannot be changed after content has been created. If you need to change the approval setting, you must delete the content and add it back in with the new approval setting.

Next, you will add a member to the folder with administrator privileges. The administrator privilege will allow this user to create subfolders within the new top folder among other administrative privileges.
Click the Folder Security tab.Step 15
Use the Folder Security page to manage the folder members and their privileges. This page lists the members and privilege sets for the current folder. Actual privileges are assigned on the Set Members Privileges page.
A new folder automatically inherits the members and privileges of its parent folder. However, privileges added later are not automatically transferred down the folder hierarchy and must be updated on a folder-by-folder basis. To assist with this process, an Inherit Members button appears when you view folder security for any subfolder, enabling you to quickly duplicate the same members as assigned to the parent folder.
Note. A top administrator is automatically granted all privileges for all content and folders of the feature without being an explicitly assigned or listed member of a folder.Step 16
