A platform administrator can assign group administrators.
Group administrators are members of the platform with the same group management permissions as an administrator at the administration level.
When a member is assigned groups administrator, he or she has additional permissions at the administration level.
An administrator cannot be assigned groups administrator because he or she already has all the group management permissions.
Guest users cannot be assigned group administrators.
Who can become groups administrator?
All members of the platform can become group administrators if an administrator of the platform has enabled it. Administrators already have groups administration rights. A guest cannot be assigned a group administrator.
Can I become groups administrator on Standard and Premium offers?
It is possible to become groups administrator on both plans.
What's the difference between both the role of groups administrator and group manager?
It is important not to confuse both roles.
Groups administrators are members with the same rights to administer groups as an administrator. They have therefore additional permissions compared to a member of the platform at the administration level.
A group manager can only be a group manager once the group has been created. He has additional permissions to the group members in the group settings.
