Manifest - Manage Folder Permissions

In order to create and manage groups, users must have privileges on a folder. Folder administrators may change who can create groups in their folders within the Manifest interface and well as change contacts and group description

Note: Folder permissions are separate from group permissions. A person with permissions on a Manifest folder does not necessarily have any permissions with groups within the folder.
