Hello - I've got a site set up with multiple folders
(mysite.com/sales, mysite.com/HR, mysite.com/marketing, etc.).
There is going to be one person responsible for each folder
and there is a separate DW template for that folder. When I go to
the users PC, the only way I've seen to set up the connection is
1) add them all to the root of the site and apply permissions
based on templates. This causes a problem because I have to give
each user a drive mapping for the site root. Obviously, I don't
want them dragging and dropping folders from windows explorer.
2) Create a separate share and map each site to the
appropriate folders and send connection keys based on share
Going this route, I also have to create a new role in
contribute based on folders, such as a sales, marketing, HR. etc...
site then create individual keys to for each role. So the writers
role is basically useless.
Does anyone know of a smarter way to go about this. We
purchased the product based on the concept that it could be
controlled with templates, which can be done, but I don't see how
to do it w/o giving all users pemissions to the root, which I'm not

server and production server. Users would only have access to edit
content on the development server. Being a local/network
connection, FTP is not an issue.
