Get Ready for Changes: Project Creation Permissions
Get ready for changes to your OpenSpace Projects

Beginning July 25, 2022, Site Admins will no longer have the ability to create a project in OpenSpace–only Org Admins will have permission. By streamlining to a single role, you can better ensure that only the appropriate users in your organization have creator permission.

What should you do to get ready for this change?

For any users who should have the ability to create a new project, including current Site Admins, you must set those users up as Org Admins.

How can you set up a user as an Org Admin?

Users can request Org Admin permissions by reaching out to and current Org Admins can update other users' permissions via the User Management tool in the Admin dashboard:

  1. Navigate to the User Management tool by clicking “Admin” in the left-hand sidebar from the project landing page.

  2. You will land in “Team Management” where you can click on the user’s email whose permissions you intend to update.

  3. Click on the 3 vertical dots next to their initials in the right-hand sidebar then Select “Promote to Organization Administrator”.

Organization Administrators are automatically added to each Site within their Organization.

If you have any additional questions please reach out to the OpenSpace support team at
