How To Give Admin Access to a LinkedIn Page
As the owner of a LinkedIn page, you may find it hard to manage everything by yourself. The good news is, you don’t have to. You can assign different admin responsibilities to different people to optimize page management.
Read on to learn how you can give someone admin access to your LinkedIn page. You’ll also find out how you can edit admin roles, remove admins, and request admin access yourself.
How to Give Admin Access to a LinkedIn Page on a PC
As the creator of your page, you’ll automatically be its super admin. Users with admin roles will see a My Pages section on their LinkedIn homepage. You can easily access the pages you manage from this menu.
In order to add an admin to your page on PC, follow these steps:
- Open the LinkedIn website and log in.
- Find the My Pages menu on the left side of your homepage.
- Click the page you want to add a new admin to. This will take you to the admin view.
- Find “Admin tools” at the top and click “Manage admins.”
- Select “Page admins” or “Paid media admins” depending on what kind of admin you need.
- Click “Add admin” and search for the user you want to add.
- Select the user and choose the admin role you want to assign them.
- Save the changes and you’re done.
You can also grant admin access to a user by responding to their admin request. You can see your admin requests in your Activity tab, but you’ll also receive email notifications about any new request. To grant permission to a request, enter the super admin view of your page.
- Find the “My Pages” section on the homepage and click the page in question.
- Click “Admin tools” and select “Manage admins.” You’ll see any pending requests here.
- Select “Assign role” next to the user you want to appoint.
- Choose the appropriate role for the new admin and click “Add admin.”
Granting admin access directly from the email notification is even simpler. Make sure you’re logged in to your LinkedIn account and then click “Deny” or “Grant” in the email.
How to Give Admin Access to a LinkedIn Page on an iPhone
If you use the iPhone app for LinkedIn, you can enter the admin view this way:
- Launch the LinkedIn app and log in.
- Press your profile picture on the homepage.
- Find the “Pages You Manage” section and tap the page.
You can see any admin requests in the activity tab.
If you want to access the advanced admin tools from your iPhone, you might need to use a different method.
- Open LinkedIn from your mobile browser.
- In Chrome, tap the three vertical dots in the upper right corner. In Safari, locate the Aa icon.
- Find the “Request Desktop Site” option.
This will allow you to use LinkedIn as you would from your PC and you’ll be able to use all the features as normal.
How to Give Admin Access to a LinkedIn Page on an Android Device
Entering the admin view in the Android app will be a similar process.
- Open the LinkedIn app and log in to your account.
- Tap your profile picture and find “Pages you manage” in the menu.
- Press the name of the page you want to manage.
- You have entered the admin view and can check your Activity.
For the advanced Admin tools, the desktop site will be necessary.
- Open Chrome and go to LinkedIn.
- Tap the three vertical dots next to the address bar to open the menu.
- Check the box next to “Desktop site.”
You’ll be able to navigate the desktop version of LinkedIn this way. Add admins to your page by accessing the admin tools in the admin view as described above.
How to Edit Admin Roles on a LinkedIn Page
If your page doesn’t need another admin but a bit of reorganization, you can also edit the current admins’ roles.
- Enter the super admin view by clicking the page name under “My Pages” on the LinkedIn homepage.
- Select “Admin tools” and then “Manage admins.”
- Choose the category of the admin whose role you want to edit.
- Find the “Edit” option next to the admin’s name.
- Give them a new role and save the changes.
Remember that every page needs to have a super admin. If you want to edit your own super admin role, you have to appoint a new super admin first.
How to Request Admin Access to a LinkedIn Page
If you’d like to gain admin access to a LinkedIn page, you can also request access from the current super admin. Before you get started, make sure you have listed your current position at the organization on your profile. If the position is missing, head to your profile to add it.
- Click your icon on the LinkedIn homepage and then “View profile.”
- Find the “Add profile section” button under your name.
- Under “Core,” you’ll find the “Add position” option.
- Fill in the form and save the changes.
If you have a secondary language profile, you’ll need to update it separately.
Once you’ve added your position, you can request admin access to the page. The steps are the same whether you’re on PC, iOS, or Android.
- Open the LinkedIn page you want to request admin access to.
- Click “More” and then “Request admin access.”
- Verify your authorization and then click “Request access” again.
- Confirm your company email if necessary.
Now, you just have to wait until your request is accepted. You’ll receive a notification as soon as the super admin has granted you access. However, if the page isn’t being managed, you might automatically become the new admin.
What are the different LinkedIn admin roles?
A LinkedIn page may have page admins and paid media admins.
Page admins include:
· Super Admins
· Content Admins
Paid media admins include:
· Sponsored Content Posters
· Lead Gen Forms Managers
· Landing Pages Managers
Do I need to log in as an admin to access admin features?
On LinkedIn, you don’t need to log in separately as an admin to access admin features. Simply access the admin view by clicking the page you manage while on the LinkedIn homepage. Super admins will automatically be taken to the super admin view.
Who can give admin access to a LinkedIn page?
On LinkedIn, only super admins can add, edit, and remove admins. If you’re a content admin, a curator, an analyst, or any kind of paid media admin, you won’t be able to add new admins or accept requests. The current super admin will need to appoint you as a super admin first.
Can one person have multiple admin roles on the same page?
An admin can only have one page admin role (super admin, content admin, curator, or analyst). However, a user can have multiple paid media admin roles on a page. It’s also possible for one person to have a page admin role as well as a paid media admin role at the same time. Give the page admin in question paid media admin permissions by adding them as a paid media admin.
How to remove an admin from a LinkedIn page
As a super admin, you can remove admins in the same way as you add a new one.
1. Enter the admin view of the page.
2. Click “Admin tools,” then “Manage admins.”
3. Use the “Delete” icon next to the admin’s name to remove them.
Manage LinkedIn Pages Efficiently
Multiple admin roles on LinkedIn allow for more efficient page management. Grant admin access to individuals you trust to leverage these perks. As the super admin of your page, you can add, edit, and remove admins anytime you want by following the above steps.
