How do I give limited admin rights by setting a user as a group-specific admin?

This feature is available for:

  • Splashtop Remote Support teams of 750 computers or higher
  • Splashtop Remote Support Premium teams
  • SOS+10 teams with 75+ licenses (750 computers) or higher
  • SOS Teams, SOS Unlimited, and SOS Enterprise teams
  • Splashtop Enterprise teams

On a Splashtop Remote Support team, a user with admin role can remotely access and manage all computers by default.

Sometimes you may want a client to have admin role, but limit their access to only a subset of computers. This allows the client to do things like add computer, remove computer, invite user, etc., but only for the groups that you authorized.

Please see instructions below to enable and to use the feature.

This feature is only available to Splashtop Remote Support teams of 750 computers or higher.

Another way to assign group-specific admins

What can a group-specific admin do

The group-specific admin has the exact same privilege as the standard admin, however, they can perform these functions only on the users and computers in the groups managed by him or her. The group-specific admin will not be able to see the group names, users, and computers in other groups.
