When someone signs up for an Swivle account, that person is at that moment the only user and thereby automatically the administrator of Swivle. As a result, only this person can invite users, set their permissions, customize the way Swivle looks, and so on.

Once additional users have been added, more users can be given the administrator role and current administrators can be made regular users.


Required licenses

For each user who acts as an administrator, a Content Manager license is required (unless Swivle is used in the trial period). Make sure a sufficient number of licenses is (temporarily) available before starting.

Before you start

Before making other users admin, please be aware that they can make changes to all aspects of Swivle, including:

  • Subscriptions
  • Swivle setup
  • User management

Managing users

Managing users in Swivle is done on the Users page in the Admin console.

To access it, click your Avatar and choose Management console and navigate to the Users page.

Assigning administrator rights to another user

Step 1. Sign in to Swivle as a user with administrator rights. (When no additional users have been made administrator yet, this will be the user who has signed up for the Swivle account.)

Step 2. Access the Users page in the Management console.

Step 3. Select a user which is not already an administrator and click Admin

Removing administrator rights from a user

Step 1. Sign in to Swivle as a user with administrator rights.

Note: This should be another user than the user from which the admin rights are going to be removed.

Step 2. Access the Users page in the Management console.

Step 3. Select the user from which the admin rights needs to be removed and click Admin.
