Adding and Removing Space Admins

Table 19. Availability - Legacy plans


Overview

The creators of space and space admins can assign and revoke the space admin role from other users.

When you create a space you automatically become the space admin. If needed, you can add other space admins and then also remove yourself from the list of space admins. Each space can have an unlimited number of admins.

Space admins can add and revoke space admin rights from other users at any time.

Note

Each space has to have at least one admin.

If there's a space in your account where the only space admin is no longer available, you can reach out to the Wrike Support team to add a new admin to that space.
