Questions and Answers
 What exactly does Folders Propagation do?
 When would you want to use Folders propagation?
 You updated a metadata value on a folder.  How do you now propagate that value down to all content and subfolders?
 What happens when you propagate if no fields are checked on the Information Field Inherit Configuration page?
 Is there a way to specify whether or not empty (blank) values should be propagated?
 Is there a way to specify that certain subfolders or content should not be changed during a propagation?
 Can the value of the Inhibit Propagation field be propagated?
 What is the effect of selecting the checkbox for the field named Folder on the Information Field Inherit Configuration page, and then propagating?
 What fields would you need to propagate if you have added users to a Collaboration Manager project, and you want those users to propagate down to all subfolders and content contained in that project?
 Is there a way to propagate metadata values only to content without any changes applied to subfolders?  Conversely, is there a way to propagate metadata values only to subfolders without any changes applied to content?
 It appears that some fields (e.g. Owner) are not present in the propagation interface, why is that?
