Have to manually set folder permissions on Mac Server

I have a small network with two iMacs, and one Air all connected to a Mac Mini server running 10.8 OS. I have network shares that I created when I set up the server with our company data within those shares.
My issue is when one user creates a folder within our share, others cannot access this folder. These created folders are subfolders of our main share so I would think they would inherit the upper level permissions. Unfortunately, when this happens, I have to go to the highest level folder and set permissions and then apply. It then seems to populate all of the lower level folders with the correct permissions. If I have to do this each time a user creates a subfolder, it will be very labor intensive.
I am sure I am missing a checkbox somewhere.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Do you are using user Groups at mac mini server???
At ServerApp, create new group, put the users in it and share the folder with all rights for this group.

Glad you asked. I did have a user group with the users added to it. However, it wasn't listed in the permissions. I had each individual user listed with read/write permissions.

I have added the user group with R/W permissions. Should I delete each individual user from the list so only the user group shows?

with each individual user listed with read/write permissions, you make it to much complex as it should be.

with user groups you can handle better R/W permissions.
Should I delete each individual user from the list so only the user group shows?
this no make any changes, but it seems to be clean ...   ;)
