Controlling the Permissions a Client User can Grant when Adding People to a Folder

Is it possible to control the Permissions a Client User is able to grant Adding People to a Folder?

For example, when I am viewing a Folder in the browser on our ShareFile domain as a Client User with Admin folder permissions, I can click "People on this Folder", then "Add People to Folder". I am able to select from all the possible Folder Permissions - Download, Upload, Delete, and Admin.

Is there a way to modify the settings for this Client User so instead of the scenario above, the only Folder Permission I would be able to select when Adding People to a Folder would be "Download", and the others would be grayed out/not selectable? I don't want this User to be able to grant "Admin" or "Delete" permissions to other Users.

If this is possible, I am also wondering if this can be controlled through the API/SDKs. I am using the .NET SDK, and adding Client Users to Folders by creating an Access Control on a Folder for a User and setting "CanManagerPermissions" to true. Are there any settings I can add when creating a User so that when the User logs in to ShareFile through the browser and shares a Folder, they only have the option to grant "Download" permissions to the Users they share the Folder with?
