Join Lynda.com Staff for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding or removing a subadministrator, part of Getting Started as a Lynda.com Administrator.
- As a master admin, you may want help organizing your organization's groups. And you can do so, here, from the User Management page, by assigning subadministrators to a group. To add new administrators, click on the Add Admin plus sign and this window will pop up asking you what kind of admin you would like to add. There are five levels, and explanations here for what each level entails. Master admin user is the highest level, and it pretty much has the same level of permissions as the overall account administrator.
The only difference is the master admin user cannot archive or reinstate users. The levels of permissions reduce as you go down the line to the right, all the way down to reporting assistant, whose only permission is to view reports. So, if I select one of these, here, it will take me to my master list of all my users, and I can select who I want to add from this list. Now, if you have a really long list of users, you may find it easier to search for one of your users using the search box to the left.
But I'll choose a couple of my users and then select save to confirm. And those users' names will now be added to the admin list here just above the main list of all your users. If you want to remove an admin, you can do so by clicking on the Quick Edit options, this X, for Remove Admin, and that will automatically remove the admin permissions for that user. So, that's how you add and remove admins, and, again, when you do so, you'll see them populate in the group's admin list here.
And when you hover over their name, to the left, you will see what type of admin level permission you've given them. Group assistant. This is a really nice way to have some help managing your groups.
