What is an admin? [NEW]

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. 

How to invite an admin to my account?

When you are creating a monday.com account, you are by default the admin of the account. You have then the option to make your 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 the invite team members button located on the upper right of your screen.

Step 2

Enter the email address of the individual you want to invite as an admin. A new user may have a non domain email address and be invited into your company's account. The user must have an email address, however.
