I have a shared folder in Samba. Everyone access the folder by mapping a drive in Windows and can put their files or folders there for sharing. However when one user create a folder or a file, it does not allow others to edit or can put other files into that folder. How can I set the permission to be autormatically granted for all others whenver one user create a file or a folder ???

Try set group write permissions for parent folder for example
770 -rwxrwx---

Here is nice CHMOD generator  http://www.meine-erste-homepage.com/chmod-generator.php

I would like to make every user can create a file or a folder which is automatically with the right to write by the others in that speicific shared folder.

Create group "USERS"
Create folder "ShareFolder"
do
#chmod :users 775 ShareFolder

Put new created user "RAMBO" in to USERS group, and now if user RAMBO will  create folder in the SfareFolder-> RamboHome , will have acces to that folder

Also because you USERS have right for paret folder ShareFolder will have access to Rambo Files.

Everything depend what Samba you are use,
I remember I did set up FreeNAS and had to tweak folders chmod right from terminal because web interface was not that perfect, but this is a linux word :)

You can also use Synology drive that is pretty OK with users and rights.
