How do I allow someone else to change permissions on my pages?

This article covers how to give administrative (or ‘admin’) permissions to allow others to change permissions on your pages. To assign admin permissions to a page, you need admin permissions for that same page.

  1. Browse to the page you want to add permissions to.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit page permissions. The Edit permissions screen appears with current permissions at the right:

    Edit permissions screen

  3. To specify a person, in the Add permissions section, select This user or group, and start typing the person's name or usercode. Select their name from the list of suggestions:

    Find a user popup

  4. In the Add permissions section, select the Admin radio button:

    Add permissions

  5. To apply the permission select the appropriate button:

    • Add permission to page button Add permission to page
    • Add permission to section button Add permission to this page and all pages below it
  6. If there are files beneath the page, you're prompted to confirm whether or not you want to give admin permissions for the files too. Select the checkbox to add permissions (or leave it unselected to retain the current permissions), then click Save changes:

    Add edit permission to files

  7. You can now see the person in the Current permissions at the right.
  8. When you have finished adding permissions, select the Done button at the top right.
