Create a Site Admin

Applicable plans Starter Essentials Business Advanced

As part of the Advanced plan, you're able to add extra site admins to your Thinkific site (up to 3). A site admin has all the same privileges as the original site owner, in comparison to course admins who only have specific permissions (more on course admins here).


Create a Site Admin


To make somebody a site admin, head to the Users page on your admin dashboard to either create a new user or edit an existing one.


Then, whilst on the user edit screen, all you need to do is select the checkbox for 'Site admin', save your changes, and that's it!



That user will now be able to log into your Thinkific site with full admin privileges.


Notes on Site Admins

  • Site admin and site owner mean essentially the same thing, but you can only have one site owner. By default this will be the person who originally created the Thinkific site - if you need to switch site owners we can do that for you, simply send us a message via the HELP page on your admin dashboard.
  • Not ready for the Advanced plan yet? The ability to have additional site admins is an Advanced plan feature. If you're not ready for the Advanced plan, you can simply set up a generic site admin account to be shared (although of course always be careful about who you give you password to!)
  • Need more than 3 site admins? If you need more than 3 accounts with full admin privileges on your site, please contact us via the HELP page on your admin dashboard to discuss options!


And if you have any additional questions, let us know below!
