Google Workspace services are managed in the Admin console by administrators. Administrators can set up security policies, create groups, and manage users. At least one of your users must be an administrator.
Create an administrator
After you add a user, you can make that user an administrator:
- Sign in to Google Domains using the Google account that manages your domain.
- Select the name of your domain.
- Click Email.
- Under "Add or remove people from Google Workspace," next to the user you want to make an administrator, click Edit .
- From the "Permission type" drop-down, change the selection from User to Admin.
- Click Save.
Customize administrator roles
When you first create an administrator, they are granted super admin status. Super administrators have access to all features of the Admin console.
You can also assign specific roles to an admin, but at least one of your users must be a super administrator.
