The team administrator – sometimes called a coach or group administrator – functionality provides limited access to the administration interface for people nominated by a Smartabase site administrator. This means your organisation can allow coaches or staff from specific areas to help manage the people they’re responsible for.

A team administrator only has visibility of and access to people in groups where they’re listed as an administrator. If a group has any subgroups, the team administrator will have access to the people within the subgroups as well.

People with team administrator access have fewer administration abilities. They can’t use all the same tools that a site administrator can. A team administrator can add new users to their groups and update some account details of people in these groups.

If you want a team administrator to be able to assign roles to people in groups they have access to, it’s necessary for that person to also have administrator permissions for each role.
