Sharepoint Online inheriting permissions

Permission question about inheriting permissions.  Lets say I have our top leve iste called "Company Site", underneat the top level site are multiple subsites (department sites).  How can I allow a certain group of employee's to create additional subsites under each department subsite and force the system to inherit permission from the department parent site?  Seems like now, if they are allowed to create subsite thye can edit permissions on site they just created and allow access to an employees that not supposed to have access.

Any help would be appreciated.


Hi AJ B,

There is no plan to include the permission you described. Plans for Office 365 can be seen at the link below:

Office 365 Roadmap.

We suggest you assign someone to be the site administrator; the administrator will be in charge of managing new site creations as well as site management.

Additionally, we suggest you provide feedback regarding this to the UserVoice link I have provided above.
