Who can be a group admin?

Group administrators can be any account administrator or any direct manager. Additionally, group administrators can be any active or invited user.

If no group administrator is chosen, any account administrator, the group's creator, or the direct manager (if all group members are in their hierarchy) can edit the group.

What permissions do group admins have?

Group admins can manage Check-in questionsedit individual settings for group members, and update group settings. Group admins and account administrators are the only roles with these permissions. Group administrators do not have visibility into all group members' Check-ins as a result of being a group administrator. If the group administrator needs visibility into anyone's Check-ins outside of their reporting line, they can request to follow those people. Group administrators are also not members of the group by default. If the group administrator should also be a member of the group, you need to add them as such.
