Admin Mode

Admin mode allows you to control the content for your organization and to put important items in the Admin Recommended folder.

Admin Mode as Super User

When you need to manage the content for your organization, you can enable Admin Mode which will turn off your personal content in the Library and allow you to see the entire file tree.


Switch to Admin Mode

To switch to Admin Mode:

  1. Go to the Library.
  2. Select View as: Content Administrator.Content Admin.png
    You will now see the whole file tree for your organization, as well as the Admin Recommended folder.

Move Important Content to Admin Recommended

Important content can be dashboards that help new users get started, or common searches that your organization needs often. You can draw attention to this content by putting it into Admin Recommended, which appears at the top of the Library. For example, you can share an Audit dashboard at the top of the Library on the Left-nav.
