What's the difference between a user and an admin?

To explain it simply, an admin is kind of like a super user with some cool super monday.com powers ;)

But really, the admin has the ability to oversee the entire account; managing everything from users and boards to security and billing. This allows for one team member (or more if you choose) to manage his/her team effectively and securely. 

To access this part of the account as an admin, simply go to your avatar at the top right and select Admin-


Then you will see all the sections of what an Admin can do-


Here's a breakdown of what an Admin can do (in addition to everything a user can do):

  • Change account name
  • Change Account URL
  • Change the Logo (for example from monday.com to the company logo)
  • Set & Sort Default Labels for the status columns
  • See all the Users and Admins and add additional admins to the account
  • Set account security
  • See the invoices and payment method
  • See all the Basic, Storage and Advanced statistics
  • Cancel the account
  • Transfer or change Board Ownership
  • Disable users
  • Delete users
  • Delete the whole account


A User can do the following (as well as the admin of course):

  • Create a board
  • Create pulses
  • Create folders
  • Invite company members inside a board and pulse
  • Viewing capabilities of all main boards
  • Edit his profile
