Admin Permissions

Admin Permissions

Admin permission is given to the first user/creator of the account. An admin can give admin permissions to any other teacher by going into ‘Teachers’ from the menu on the EdShed homepage and clicking on the button under the admin permission column so it says ‘Yes’. 


We frequently get asked by users if we can give them admin permissions but we prefer that this is done by another admin at the school. If the only admin user has left your school we are able to change it to another user for you.
