- More Info
Admins are users with extended rights. There are two types of admins:
- Regular admins are users who have been given admin rights. There is no limit to the number of regular admins an account can have.
- The account owner is, by default, the person who initially registered for the account. There can only be one account owner per account. Learn how to change the account owner here.
- This page focuses on what permissions admins have and how to make a user an admin. For more specific information about admin-only rights check out the following pages: User Management Chart, License Types, Advanced Security Settings (Enterprise only), Controlled Admin Permissions (Enterprise only).
- Admins (and all Wrike users) can only see Tasks, Folders, and Projects which are shared with them.
The below table shows the main rights available to account admins.
