Hi, all - this is a quick breakdown on how to add community administrators to a member-created community. (Please note: for AMS-managed communities, all changes to membership and admin roles will take place via your membership database and will be transferred to the Higher Logic side via the periodic sync.)

To add a community administrator, you should first navigate to your community landing page, click on the Settings button next to the community title, and click on the Members button:

Once there, click on the Add Administrators button:

Type in the name of the user you'd like to add as an administrator (please note: they must already be members of the community):

The system will find them, and then you can click the blue Add Administrators button, and you're all done!

If you want to remove administrator permissions, simply click the Revoke button next to the user's name, and it will remove that user from the list of administrators:

Cheers to you all - and happy community managing!
