Organization Admins - More Extensive Permissions

As a the admin of an org plan
I want to have admin rights by default to teams others create within my org
In order to administrate my org effectively

(seriously, I need to ask other people to set me as admin on new projects so that I can grant other people edit rights. It makes no sense that I can make people global admins, but not an editor of a team)

Thanks :slight_smile:


@Steve_Dennis I’m having the exact same trouble right now, and have given this feedback a few months ago to Figma. Editors should have less access, and we need superadmin access, or else Figma would become a huge mess in no time, even if we setup the organization/foundation properly.

Two votes, we can do this! :wink:

This is so frustrating for me. I need the ability to clean up my org as an admin. I need to be able to rename or delete teams and respective projects if necessary. It would make sense as org admin to always have β€˜owner’ capabilities on each team within the org.

Yes please.
In an agency setting, if the owner of a team is on vacation or sick at least I – as an admin – must be able to edit their files and change permissions.

Vote 10 is here - we need this so badly.

Figma team completely missed the ball here. How is it possible that an admin cannot add/remove people from a team/project and adjust rights. This is so so frustrating

This is exactly what I need. BTW I request a feature that does not allow anyone to create a team. It has been messy in our teams page.

The fact that we are debating such a simple workflow is making me nervous.
Owner->Admins->Rights or Owner->Users->Rights should be as simple as that isn’t it? How can an organisation pay for an editor who can invite anyone for editing? (most of the cases by mistake) and you cant blame them as they are not admins, they are just UI/UX designers.
