PS. On a related note, I would *love* to see permissions for CRUD operations on 
locations broken out as well. So that I can delegate to trusted users;-)

    Hi Lydia-
    You can manage the permissions associated with the top containers by going 
to the “Manage Groups” menu option under the repository gear icon (I hope that 
makes sense!) I think you may have to be an administrator to grant these 
    Once there, you can either edit an already existing group and allow that 
group to have create/update rights for top containers or create a new custom 
group and assign users to that.
    Hope that helps!

        I have been trying to search the documentation on Top Containers but 
perhaps I am overlooking something - since migrating to version 1.5.1, it seems 
to me that anyone with less than archivist or even repository manager positions 
are not able to create Top Containers which can be problematic when just trying 
to enter a basic finding aid.  Additionally, it hasn’t been very clear to me 
where I (as a respository manager) can bulk create containers for the people I 
am working with.
        In the “Manage Top Container” section, I am able to look up and bulk 
edit (yay!) existing top containers but not create any new ones from this view.
        Additionally, any new Top Containers show up as labeled “Container” 
despite being able to distinguish them as “boxes” or other formats in the drop 
down menu.
        I have been able to more easily add boxes for finding aids by using the 
Rapid Data Entry, but unfortunately it seems like the basic workflow for us in 
generating finding aids has gotten a lot more complicated with this new update.
        Any thoughts or workarounds would be greatly appreciated!
