Available with: Team Plans         Role: Super Admin


This tutorial will introduce you to the Global Settings available to you as a Super Admin. Any changes you make to these settings will take place on an organizational level. 

To get to your settings page as a Super Admin you can view the Global Settings in your Admin Console (Admin Dashboard). Click on Admin in  your sidebar menu. If Admin is at the top of your menu then you are already in your Admin Console.

For Global Settings you will see the Settings option in your sidebar menu.  If your menu is collapsed you should click on the Gear Icon that appears in the menu below.

Setting Page


When you click on this icon you will see the Global Settings window appear.  There are 3 things you should take notice of first. 

  1. The ability to lock ALL settings
  2. The menu at the top that will let you jump to each Setting category. As a Super Admin you may change the default settings in each of these sections.
  3. The little locks beside each setting. Use these locks to secure the setting you have set and make it unchangeable.  
    1. The first arrow points to the Help Instructions setting, it is turned on and locked. No one may override this setting unless they are another Super Admin who may unlock it. 
    2. The second arrow points to the Time Zone setting.  The Eastern Time Zone is set as the default for everyone’s account. However, because it is unlocked users and Team Admins may override this and set their own time zone.   A Team Admin may, for their teams, lock the time zone to whichever time zone they choose.
