Admin Permissions

⏱ 2 min read

Overview

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.
