What is an administrator (aka admin)? Can we have multiple admins? How do I give someone admin access?

Administrators can:

  • Create new projects and project templates
  • Manage companies and people
  • Edit other people‚Äôs messages
  • Change project-level permissions
  • Change global settings and project settings

    Administrators cannot:

  • See or update billing details
  • Add themselves to other projects
  • See everyone project automatically
  • Change account owners

    Admins can essentially do anything on your Basecamp account except for cancelling, upgrading, or viewing/changing billing details. You can have as many admins as you’d like!

    Note: An admin must be a member of your primary company. Members of client companies will not show up on that admin list. Also, if an admin does not have access to a project, they don’t have any admin powers over that project.

    To enable admin permissions in a Basecamp account, go to the All People tab.

    In the header above your primary company, you’ll see a link to update your administrator list.

    Click that link, and you can make your updates!
