Owners and Administrators

As a Workspace Owner or Administrator, you can promote other members to help manage your workspace.

  • Owners can access high-level administrative features like billing, workspace authentication, access, security policies, and more. There can only be one Primary Owner of a workspace, but this role can be transferred to another member.
  • Admins can manage members, channels, and handle other administrative tasks.

💡  Visit Roles and permissions in Slack for a list of roles and what they can do.

Tip: To view a full list of admins in your workspace, click  People at the top of your left sidebar and select Owners or Admins from the Account type drop-down menu.
