A sub-admin, also known as a sub-administrator or sub-manager, is a person who has been given administrative powers over a specific part of LXP Control. This means they can manage and make changes to that area but have a different level of access than a full admin.

Use cases for this feature:

  • Allow specific users only to see users of certain groups

  • Allow specific users to view only part of the Control space (Audience and Structure, more areas will be added in future)

  • Allow specific users to have access to the in-app reporting.

In this article, you can find information on:

In LXP Control, under Structure > Admins, you can create new admin groups and set specific permissions and which groups these users will view.

Create an admin group

  • Go to LXP Control, Structure > Admins and click on the 'create admin group' button.

  • In the right editor, add an admin group name; you can directly add the translations of that name.

  • Then set the permissions and target groups.


  • Access control of this platform: This permission must be selected with other permissions so that the sub-admin can access more tabs in Control.

  • Import users: Allow sub-admin to import users via the Audience tab. This permission should be combined with View members permission.

  • Manage invites: Allow sub-admins to invite new users via the Audience tab.

  • Manage members: Admin can only view the users in the assigned group in the Structure tab.

  • Reporting: Allow managers to have in-app reporting access. This permission should be combined with View members and Manage members permissions.

  • View members: Allow sub-admin to view the users in the assigned group via Audience.

Target groups:

Set the target groups that the users part of the admin group will see; they will not see the other groups not selected.

Add users to your admin group:

On the top right, click on the button to add users to your admin group.

Good to know 👀

  • To give sub-admin full access to the Audience and Structure tabs, you need to provide the following permissions: access control of this platform + import users + manage invites + manage members + view members.

  • To give in-app manager reporting access, you must provide the following permissions: view members + manage members + reporting.
