System Admin Guide

Learn tips and best practices to help you manage your Workplace.

Group & Content Management


As a system admin, you can see all of your organization's groups (including secret groups) in the Groups page of the Admin Panel. You can also become an admin of any one of your organization's groups. In the group page, go to Admin Options. Here, you'll be able to alter group settings, moderate member requests and content, and gather group insights.

Admin Options

Go to Group Settings to pre-approve people to your group based on other groups they're already members of. You can also add entire teams to you group by adding the team manager.

Membership Preapprovals

People Sets:

People Sets allow you to assign users to groups based on criteria like account status, department, job title, and location. You can also use People Sets to analyze user behavior based on department, team, location, etc.

Content Management:

Go to the Reported Content page of the Admin Panel to handle posts that were reported as inappropriate. You'll see who reported a post and why before deciding whether to approve or remove it.

Profile Fields

You can also promote posts by specific people so they show up at the top of the Newsfeed for all staff. This is a great way to ensure announcements made by your C-suite and important company information posts reach every member of your organization.
