Delegate administrator support

If your organization needs multiple administrators, you can create administrator roles in your Google Admin console. Administrator roles let you grant administrators access to settings they need while blocking access to settings they don't need. Delegating administrator support allows users with super admin rights to create user roles and assign privileges specific to Google meeting room hardware. There are two levels of privilege that can be granted, Google meeting room hardware with or without Calendar.


Create a delegated administrator role
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in

  2. From the dashboard, click Admin roles.
  3. Click Create a new role.
  4. Enter a name and description for the role, then click Continue.
  5. On the Select privileges panel, click Chromebox for meetings.
  6. Check either Chrome devices for meetings with Calendar or Chrome devices for meetings without Calendar.
  7. Click ContinueCreate role.

Note: Selecting the Chrome devices for meetings with Calendar setting will grant admins full access to all users’ calendars and event details on the Calendar page, not just the calendar resource management.

The privileges you select determine which dashboard controls are in the user's Admin console and what settings the user can manage. In some cases, selecting one privilege automatically selects or disables another. Checking the box to allow full rights for Organizations and Users, for example, selects every privilege in that section.

When a user is created, a role is assigned to that user. This feature allows the user to act on specific organization units.

Note: The new delegated admin can update settings immediately after assignment of privileges. However, for certain features such as the calendar assignment, it can take 24 to 48 hours to have full control.

  • Manage device settings
