Add an administrator

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:

  1. Sign in to Google Domains using the Google Account that manages your domain.
  2. Select the name of your domain.
  3. Click Email.
  4. Under 'Add or remove people from Google Workspace', next to the user who you want to make an administrator, click Edit Edit.
  5. From the 'Permission type' drop-down, change the selection from User to Admin.
  6. Click Save.

Customise 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.

Administrator tips

Password recovery: If you can't sign in to your administrator account, you can reset your password and a temporary password is sent to your secondary email address or phone number.

Security: Administrators can enforce security policies to protect your domain and your users' data. Learn more.

Add users and billing: While administrators can manage users from the Admin console, adding users and billing changes are managed from the Google Domains account that handles your domain.

Google Groups: By putting your users into organisational units, administrators can easily turn services on and off for groups of users. Learn more.

Mobile: You can manage your mobile team from the Admin console. Learn more.
