What is a Space Administrator?
A space administrator is one who leads ('owns') the organization and management of their wiki space contents and the access to these contents. This person manages the permissions for the space and can modify the overall look and feel of the space.
The person who requests a new wiki space is designated as the default space administrator of that space. Additional space administrators may be assigned to the space by any existing space administrator and will have the same access, permissions, and responsibilities as the original requester. We recommend having at least one backup space administrator who can perform your duties when you are away.
Space administrators must be UCSF faculty, staff, or students.
Who are the Space Administrators of a wiki space?
To find the space administrator(s) for a given space, go to the Space Tools menu (bottom left) and select Overview.
Space Admin Controls:
The Space Admin controls are found in the Space Tools menu at the bottom of the left sidebar. If you're the owner/requester of a wiki space or you've been given Space Admin permissions by the owner, you'll see these menu options (see screenshot to the left) to control user access and permissions, change the look and feel of the space, and modify other settings.
Roles and Responsibilities:
Space Administrators are the first level of support for granting access to their wiki space. Space Admins have full access to the tools that enable them to manage users into their wiki space. They are also better equipped to know the levels of permissions that would be appropriate. Wiki Admins support them if they run into issues.
