Organization Administrator #

When it comes to your account, Org Admins are the ones who know it all, see it all, and manage it all. They have the highest level access within your Organization. Org Admins have access to all workspaces and can make changes to all custom settings and plan items within each workspace. They manage the subscription, billing plan, user licensing, profiles and workspace access.

Who is an Org Admin?

The very first user in a brand new organization is an Org Admin
Anyone with the Org Admin box checked on their User Profile

It’s always a good idea to have more than one Org Admin. That way you can rely on a backup to handle administrative functions when someone is on vacation or out of the office. Go to Administration in the left-side navigation and select All Users. Choose a user and check the Org Admin box on their User Profile.
