Workspace administration

Administrators manage workspace settings and user access. They also make sure that even with many users, the workspace remains well structured and clean.

The first user registering for a Signavio workspace is by default an administrator.

As administrators have extensive rights and can make profound changes to your Signavio workspace, we recommend IT-skilled users familiar with the Signavio software and BPMN should be in charge. It is important to communicate and document changes in workspace settings among your administrative team, so that all administrators are up to date and can give accurate responses to user queries.
