Administrators & Roles: Create, Edit, Remove

Manage all network administrators and admin roles in once location in your Honeycommb Control Center.

Whether you're a small network under 100 members or a large network with over 100 thousand members, more administrators to improve the health of your network and engagement of your community is often a requirement.

In your Control Center > Account & Billing you'll find the "Administrators & Roles" area where you can add and remove network administrators.


Creating a New Administrator

*Requirement: Any administrator must first have a member profile in your network. If the person you wish to make an administrator does not yet have a profile, have them sign up for your network or create their account in Members > Create New Member (button).


  1. In your Control Center, in the "Administrators & Roles" are, click the "New Administrator" button on the top right.
  2. Search for the member you wish to make an administrator by name in the "Select Member" field, and select them.
  3. "Select an administrator role type" by selecting from the drop down menu. For more on Administrator role types, see Administrator Role Type Definitions.
  4. If selecting "Group Admin", in the field that appears under the administrator role type drop down, search for the group you wish this member to be an administrator of by name and select it.
  5. Click "Create Admin" to save. Your new administrator will be informed of their role via email.


Adding Multiple Administrator Roles to a Single Member

Honeycommb allows you to add multiple administrator roles to a single member. For example, you may want a single member to administer multiple groups in your network. Easy!


  1. Select the administrator you wish to add another administrator role to from the table of administrators by clicking on their table row. This will open up the right side area where you can adjust the members administrator roles.

    If the administrator doesn't exist yet, follow the steps above for "Creating a New Administrator".

  2. Click the "+ Add Admin Role" button.
  3. Select the administrator role type, follow any further requirements based on role type and click "Save" to apply the new administrator role to your member. Your member will be informed of their new role via email.


Removing an Administrator Role

Removing an administrator role(s) from a member is easily done from the Administrators & Roles area. See how below...


  1. Select the administrator you wish to remove an administrator role from by clicking on their table role in the table of administrators. This will open up the right side area where you can see administrator roles associated to the member.
  2. Hovering over the admin role will reveal a trash can icon 🗑️. Clicking on that icon will remove the administrator role from the member. Note that if this is the only admin role associated to the member, they will also be removed from the list of administrators in the administrator table.
