How To Set An Admin On ClickUp

Do you need more people that can help you manage your workspace on ClickUp? If that’s the case, you can promote one of the members to an admin on your workspace. Check our guide below, and we’ll show you how to do it from the ClickUp web and desktop app.


If you’re working on a large project on ClickUp, your workspace may have a lot of members to work on the tasks you need. While having more people in your workspace can speed up your work, managing them can be time-consuming.

Thankfully, you can promote members of your workspace to an admin position to give them permission to handle administrative tasks for you. Admins can manage workspace members, billing, integrations, and more.

Here’s our guide about making someone an admin on ClickUp.

How to promote one of the members to an admin on ClickUp

If you need more help in managing your ClickUp workspace you can promote more admins. Admins have more permissions compared to guests and workspace members.

You can promote a member to an admin from the ClickUp desktop and web app. In our tutorials below, we’ll show you the steps to do so.

On your computer:

  1. Open the ClickUp desktop app or visit their web client and sign in to your account.
  2. Click your workspace and profile icon at the bottom of the sidebar.

  3. On the menu that appears on your screen, select “People” under the workspace options.

  4. Browse the workspace members, click More options on the right of one of the users, and select “Make admin” from the menu.

Once you delegate someone as admin, they can immediately use the new permissions they have within your workspace. As such, make sure to promote only the people you trust as admins on the app.

On top of being able to do everything that regular members do, admins can handle administrative tasks, such as managing the members, integrations, billing, and user roles within the workspace.

If you ever change your mind, you can always revoke your decision about promoting an admin on ClickUp. All you have to do is head to the People section of your workspace settings to manage its members.

To wrap things up

Now that you know how to promote members to admins on ClickUp, you can now get more people to help you manage your workspace. Always remember to promote only the people you trust since admins have a lot of permission that can affect your current project.
