Intro to administrators in the RingCentral app
| RingCentral app

Administrators, or admins, have the highest level of permissions within their RingCentral app account. When a user is given these permissions, they will have access to the Administration page via Settings, where they can add new admin users and configure their company account settings.
Users are assigned as an admin by other admin users. In order to be assigned as an admin, you must be a co-worker in the RingCentral app — that is, you must be an employee of your company and not added to the RingCentral app as a guest user.
There are two types of admin users in the RingCentral app: Super Admins and regular RingCentral app admins. 

Super Admins

Initially, the account administrator of a RingEX account is the person who created the account for the company and is called the Super Admin. This person becomes the Super Admin in both the RingCentral online account and RingCentral app.
However, if another user becomes a Super Admin in the RingCentral app, this doesn’t automatically make them a Super Admin in the RingCentral online account, and vice versa. For more info about user roles and permissions in the RingCentral online account, visit RingCentral Predefined User Roles and Permissions.
RingCentral app Super Admins can:
  • Assign another co-worker as a Super Admin
  • Access administration settings within the RingCentral app, where they can create other users and manage certain company app settings
  • View all private and public teams from the Contacts menu, where they can join private teams, reassign team admins, modify team settings, and more
