All things Admin


Let's talk about the administration section! This section is the place to go for the admin(s) of an account to manage anything from security settings, users on the account, account customization, billing, and more. 🙌



How to become an admin

Before anything, let’s first clarify how someone is or becomes an admin. You are an automatically an  admin if you created the account or were added as an admin by another administrator on your account.

Note: To read more about how to add another admin to your account, check out this article.


Locating the administration section

You can find the administration section by clicking on your profile picture in the top right corner of your screen. From the resulting menu, select "Administration" as so:



The administration section consists of multiple sections within it. Let's check out how each section works. 👇



  • Profile

You are able to change your account name and the URL you use to log in to your account. Check out this article to learn more about it.Group 35 (4).png


  • Account 

You can also change the first day of the work week to Sunday or Monday and decide to show or hide weekends within the Timeline. Selecting "Hide Weekends" here will grey out the weekends displayed within your Timeline Column and will only allow you to select dates within the work week.

You can also choose to export your entire account's data from this section as well. Group 36 (1).png


  • Work Schedule 

As the admin, you can add or adjust work schedules for different teams based on their location, time off and working hours. This ensures that the different ways your users work, will be accurately accounted for. 

To do this, start by selecting "Work schedule" and "Add a schedule" and choosing your team's weekly workdays and hours. Within the work schedule, you can select your days off, you can select specific days within the year as exceptional days off, whether it may be a public holiday or a company day off, so that you can make sure the relevant people will not be scheduled as working for those days. Click next once again, assign a team to this schedule, and then you're good to go!

Note: Multiple teams can be allocated the same working schedule. The user's schedule will be the first team they were added to and will not update automatically if they are assigned to a new team.


Tip: The work schedule will only impact the Workload view and widget, as it reflects the users availability; working days, time off and working hours.
