Administrator's Role

Administrators manage workspace settings and user access. They make sure that the workspace remains well-structured and organized regardless of the number of users.

The first user registering for a workspace is by default an administrator. They are known as "Tenant Owner" and cannot be deleted.

We recommend this role for IT-skilled users who are familiar with the software and BPMN to manage the administrative tasks as they have extensive rights to the workspace. It is recommended to communicate and document changes to your administrative team, so all administrators are up-to-date.
