To explain it simply, an admin is kind of like a "super user" which 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 their account effectively and securely.
How to add another admin to your account
The person who initially creates the monday.com account is by default the admin of the account. The admin then has the option to make other members admin of this account as well. It's always great to have a second admin just in case as backup!
- Step 1
Click on your profile picture on the bottom left of your screen and click on "Administration":
- Step 2
From there, click on the tab "Users" as below:
- Step 3
Locate the user which you are looking to make admin. Under the "User Type" column, select on the arrow next to their user type and select "Admin" from the dropdown menu.
You can also change a user's type through this same menu. You can learn more about how to manage the users on your account here.
How to remove an admin
In the event that you need to remove an admin, simply follow the same steps as above and select the user type which you would like to change them to (Member, Viewer, or Guest). Doing this will remove their admin rights as well.

How to access the administration section
To access this part of the account as an admin, simply go to your profile picture on the bottom left corner of your screen and select "Administration".
From here, you'll access the admin section where you can locate a full menu of all admin customization capabilities.
