Edit an administrator’s permissions

The primary administrator (the only type of admin who can make changes to other admin permissions) of the account can edit an administrator’s permissions at anytime.

The ability to edit full access vs. select permissions is only available on Complete and Concierge plans—if you don't have this option, admins can upgrade their Gusto plan.

  1. Sign in to Gusto as the Primary administrator.

  2. Click the Settings tab.

  3. Click the Admins tab.

  4. Click edit next to the admin’s name.

  5. Indicate whether you’d like to give them full access or select permissions individually.

    • Note: An admin’s permissions dictate what they are able to see and do in Gusto and which emails they receive.

  6. Click Save Changes.

Your admin will receive an email detailing their updated permission settings.

Payroll, benefits, HR and more.
