How can I add ALL users to public folder permissions

We have roughly 50 users and a few public folders in O365. I went into the public folder permissions and it only allows me to add 1 user at a time!?

I need all the users to be able to rad/write to the folders. How can I add all the users to the folders without spending 5 hours manual adding and saving every single time?

Use the "Default" security descriptor. You can do it via PowerShell cmdlet:

Add-PublicFolderClientPermission "blabla" -User Default -AccessRights Owner

Hi onad,

Firstly, in the UI, it is an expected behavior that it will only let you add one user at a time.

However, you can use PowerShell to assign permission to multiple users at one time.

In Office 365 Online, the Default permission has been given. So you need to remove it before you run the Add-PublicFolderClientPermission cmdlet. After you connect your PowerShell to Exchange Online, you can run the following cmdlets:

1.Remove-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\PF" -User Default

2.Add-PublicFolderClientPermission "\PF" -User Default -AccessRights Editor (Editor permission is enough for the users to read and write)

To confirm it, run 3. Get-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\PF"

If you run into any problems, please let us know.

Thanks,
Alex
