You may need to adjust who has administrator or moderator access as roles change within your organisation.
How you do this depends on whether you are using admin groups on your account. If you're unsure on this, you can check Configuration - if you see the Administration Group tab down the left-hand side, it means you're using admin groups.
Assigning Administrator and Moderator privileges without admin groups
You can make someone both an Administrator and a Moderator if you choose, we recommend that where possible at least two individuals have dual permissions. Please see the help page on difference between an Administrator and a Moderator.
While it is possible to be a Moderator but not an Administrator, it is not recommended. Instead, ensure all your Moderators are Administrators too.
Only an Administrator can give Administrator permissions and only a Moderator can give someone else Moderator access.
To make someone an Administrator and/or Moderator go to the Administration centre > People tab. Find the person(s) you want to give access to using the Filter tool and make your selections.
Click on Edit under the Edit column for an individual or for multiple selections Edit users in bulk, a pop-up window will load.
Tick the check boxes for Administrator and/or Moderator to give a person(s) special permissions.
You can remove these permissions at any time by following the same steps and removing the ticks from the check boxes.
Assigning Administrator and Moderator privileges with admin groups
If you have admin groups enabled on your account then you will not see these two options and instead will need to go to the Configuration > Administration Groups to update who has Administrator and Moderator access.
