How to Create an Admin Account


Site administrators have access to the full suite of tools available on the frontend and backend of your platform. This guide will take you through the process of adding an existing user on your platform as a site administrator.

Step 1 - Navigate

You can find the site administrators page on your platform by going to the following, whilst logged in as a site administrator:

Site Administration > Users > Site administrators

Step 2 - Adding the user

Once you’ve opened this page, you’ll see that the area is split into two separate boxes.

Test pathway content page

The text area on the left side contains a list of all current Site Administrators on the system, while the right side area shows a list of all of the remaining users on the site that are not currently Site Administrators.

To add a new Site Administrator you can search for the user you wish to add by using the "Search" box found below the right side user box to search and filter users on the system and then select the user and click on the "Add" button to move this user to the left side as a Site Administrator. You’ll then be prompted to confirm this change.

The same logic applies to remove a Site Administrator, you will need to click on their name in the left side area and then click on the "Remove" button to remove the Site Administrator permission from the users account.
