About administrative ownership of client accounts
If you have a manager account, you can be an administrative owner of a client account, which allows you to manage user access on the client account.
This article explains how administrative ownership works. For more background, read About manager accounts.
How administrative ownership works
Managers who are administrative owners can do the following:
- Grant and remove access for all users on the client account.
- Change access levels for all users on the client account.
- Accept/decline link requests to the client accounts from other managers
- Turn on and off administrative ownership for other managers.
- Remove users from a client account.
- Turn on and off remarketing list sharing for a client account
If a manager links an existing account, it won’t have administrative ownership of that client account by default.
If a manager creates a new account, the manager will automatically become an administrative owner of that account. Even if a user with administrative access is added to that client account, the manager will continue being the administrative owner.
Make a manager an administrative owner
A manager account has to be made an administrative owner of an account from within the account itself. Here's how:
- Click the tools icon in the upper right corner of the managed account.
- Under “Setup,” click Account access.
- Click the Managers sub-page.
- Turn on the setting in the “Administrative owner” column.
