Admin rank enables you to create a hierarchy among admins and ensure that policies and settings configured by admins with higher rank cannot be overridden by admins with lower rank. For example, if the CIO, who has the highest rank, sets a rule for the organization blocking all access to pornography, no lower-ranked admin can create a pornography rule that overrides the one set by the CIO. The admin rank ranges from 0 (high) to 7 (low). The highest rank, 0, belongs to the super admin. For each additional role you create, you can assign an admin rank between 1 (high) and 7 (low).
By default, the admin rank feature is disabled. To use this feature, you must go to Administration > Advanced Settings and Enable Admin Ranking.
The admin rank affects admins in the following areas.
When creating rules for any of the above policies, admins must assign the rule an admin rank that is lower than their own rank. The rule’s admin rank in turn automatically determines the rule order, so that rules with a higher admin rank are always given precedence in the rule order. Rules with the same admin rank can be manually moved before or after another rule with the same rank.
Admins can edit a rule or change a rule’s place in the rule order only if the rule’s admin rank is equal to or lower than their own admin rank.
