Folder+users management is very poor. Look like it made for 3-5 folders for synchronizing, Plus only few letters in webGUI folder name shown.
Imagin team from 5 persons. They all produced projects. Each of them is a writer to his|her own part of project (folder within project). They have central server for be always online and for central back-up.
Folder structure on “Server”: Projects Project 1 Folder 1 (Person 1 can write, others only read) (For example it’s Designer) Folder 2 (Person 2 can write… (For example it’s Civil Engineer) Folder 3 (… 3…) (For example it’s Electric Engineer) Folder 4 (…4…) (… Automation Engineer) Folder 5 (…5…) (… Project manager) Project 2 … Project 100 … Project infinity (can be a lot more then 5)
How I can organized it today (2017-03-19 for history)? On server i should create double rights folders with write and read permissions. After that share them between Persons without mistakes, It;s already 10 folders in webGUI syncthing only for one theoretical project. You can easy imaging that it would be more then 5 persons in team, And more projects then one. Also each of person can have more then 1 computer - plus mobile as minimum. Even without double rights for each folder it huge mount of work and manage it not easy at all.
- We need instrument that can help with it. Maybe like common table with persons (computers) in axis X and Folders in axis Y. And flags in cells read/write/none. Colors are welcome too.
- We need something like flag “add sub-folders of 1 level deeper as selected folders” when we add new folder to syncthing.
- We should see all sub-folder tree and manage rights for sub-folders for each machine (person).
