User/Shared Collections - features?

Hello -  I have a few questions about the features for the User/ Shared Collections in development.  My general understanding is that it will be possible to share a folder containing uploaded content with a set of people using their email (i.e. Canvas account) and thereby give those persons the ability to post that content to courses using the RCE integration.

But will it be possible to assign the ability to edit the shared content (i.e. title, description, tags, add /edit captions, etc.), and when doing so remove the ability for these persons to delete the media content?  The concern is that if you share your content with a list of persons that someone may delete it in error.  That is undesirable.

We are looking at creating a workflow that involves assigning the capability to create and edit captions within Studio but does not give the permission to delete the actual media.

We would also like to create a workflow to caption video for instructors, without otherwise editing or deleting the video.

Hello there,

We are also struggling with the same issue. It would be very helpful if we could allow people to edit tags, captions etc but not to delete the video! On top of that, we have another issue which is that any users who have admin permissions in Canvas will automatically inherit Studio admin permissions when they open up Studio. So even if we shared as view with some other staff, they still have the ability to delete!

I understand that this is a functionality that they currently don't have the ability to change but it will be great if they could take these ideas on board when releasing the new update.
