An Account Administrator is a specific type of user within Alchemer and has administrative capabilities that general Alchemer users do not.
By default, each Alchemer account has one Account Administrator.
How do I know if I am an Account Administrator?
If you have an Alchemer CE account, the user that purchased the account is the Account Administrator.
For an Alchemer Enterprise Account, the simplest option is to access your Account menu when logged into Alchemer. An Account Administrator has access to several menu options (depending on License) that a general user cannot access (highlighted below).
- Under Account > Summary, Account Administrators will have visibility into account-wide details including Your Account, Projects, and Account-wide Usage.
- Under Account>Summary, as well as Account>User Management, Alchemer Enterprise Admins will also have access to manage Users.
- Under Account>Settings, Account Administrators can set Account Defaults as well as Share, Security, and Compliance settings.
- Admins will also have access to Billing under the Account menu.
- Finally, admins will have access to a number of items under the Integrations menu that non-admin users do not.
If you are an Account Administrator on an Alchemer Enterprise account and want to determine whether your account has additional admins, you can view this information under Account > User Management > Users. Admin users are indicated by the star symbol on the main user screen.
If you have purchased additional admin seats, you can assign admin privileges to an existing user by clicking on the user and selecting Account Admin under Permissions.
