Shared Folder - Changing Sub-Folder Names

I have noticed that if the owner of a Shared Folder with sub-folders,
changes the name of a sub-folder, that name change is not replicated to
the shared users.
Similarly if the sub-folders within the main shared folder are
re-organized (ie nested in a new order), that replciatioun does not
take place either.

Is this working as designed or a bug ?

Thanks,

Hi Steve,

Are you seeing this issue across post offices, or within a single post office?

Cheers,

Across post offices and within ...

If it's a factor, the source user of the shared folder is an External
Entity - no e-Dir counterpart.

Re: Shared Folder - Changing Sub-Folder Names

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the info. One more question though.... are these clients in caching mode?

Depends on your perspective I think 😉

I suspect it is WAD. It is not a dynamic process. Even before the ability to
share a folder tree, once the user had accepted the folder, structural changes
(moving things around, renaming etc.) were not passed to the sharees. Sharing
sub-folders just allows a chunk of folders to be shared at one time, but still
doesn't prevent either the older or the recipients from renaming or moving
things around independently after the fact.

Re: Shared Folder - Changing Sub-Folder Names

This shared folder is a work in progress with changes happening weekly.


I guess the only way to do this is to remove all the Share privileges
(ie - delete the shared folder on the other end) and then re-share it
out.

Re: Shared Folder - Changing Sub-Folder Names

Hi Steve,

You could always look to a third party app that does this synchronisation. Something like Omni Riva Managed Policies allows a 'tree' of subfolders to be periodically synced and updated as new folders are added.
