Change a team member's role

Team administrators can use the dashboard to let others manage a team and its Essentials account.

Important: Assign the team admin role only to people you trust. All team admins can:

  • Invite new users, which increases your monthly bill.
  • Remove users from the team, including other admins.
  • Manage billing and cancel your team's subscription.
  • Gain access to files owned by others, including files owed by other admins.

Additionally, we recommend that all team admins protect their accounts with 2-step verification
