You can tell whether or not you are a local administrator by whether or not the "Admin" tab is present when you log in to Site Builder. The "Admin" tab is only present for local administrators.

What does being a local administrator mean?

Being a local administrator means that there are certain tasks that you can perform, that general users cannot. These include:

  • Granting and revoking user permissions
  • Adding and removing users
  • Managing sections and menus
  • Adding departmental links (general users can only add related links)

Discuss with your supervisor or department head about whether you require local administrator access.

How can I tell who is a local administrator?

Local administrators can see who else is a local administrator by viewing the "Users" section of the "Admin" tab. General users should contact us to find out who in their department is a local administrator.
