This specific article is focused on enabling you to change, add, or update your list of administrators. This is very similar to changing administrators for an event.
All administrators have the ability to "Manage Users" and "Manage Memberships".
Important Note: There are two types of administrators. There is a primary organizer, selected to be on the "face" of the group, and then there are "behind the scenes" administrators who are not publicly visible.
There are a few ways to edit admin roles. The first is by going to the group dashboard and clicking "Edit Group."
Under Basic Info, you can change the administrator to another member of the group:
You can also add Additional Contacts (admins) from here as public facing primary administrators, if you have a subscription that allows for more than one admin:
Another way to update roles is through the Manage Users page.
From here, you can use the right-hand Actions dropdown to add or remove admin roles. If you add an admin role to a user from here, it will be a behind the scenes admin.
If someone is already an admin, you can remove the admin role. If the admin you are removing is the primary admin, you will be prompted to select a new primary admin.
If the user doesn't exist, you can navigate to the "Create User" path and input the new name, email and role (administrator or primary administrator) and this will automatically make this new user the main organizer.
In addition, if you navigate to the Manage Memberships page you may review all the users and their roles (admin, member etc.,) in your group. There is a column (role) where you may select and filter who has administrative capabilities. Then there is an "Actions" column on the far right, select the dropdown and see the actions.
Primary Organizer: If you want to set the organizer "face" of the group, as mentioned above, setting a user as "Administrator" in the Manage Users will still require you to "Edit Group" and select a member to be the face.
When editing Events, when selecting who the primary organizer is for an event, the list of administrators include all administrators, the user who created the event + all network admins + all network event managers + all members of the group + all admins of the event.
