How To Change Board Admin Trello

Modifying the board administrator in Trello is a straightforward task that can be completed with only a handful of steps. As a long-time user of Trello, I have found this function to be exceptionally valuable when it comes to effectively managing and arranging my boards. In this article, I will assist you in navigating the process of altering the board admin in Trello.

Step 1: Access the Board Settings

To begin, open the Trello board for which you want to change the admin. In the top-right corner of the board, click on the “Show Menu” button (the three horizontal lines icon). This will open a sidebar on the right side of the screen. From the sidebar, select the “Board Settings” option.

Step 2: Select the Members Tab

Once you are in the board settings, you will see several tabs at the top of the sidebar. Click on the “Members” tab to proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Manage the Board Admin

In the “Members” tab, you will see a list of all the board members. To change the admin, locate the member that you want to make the admin and click on the “…” button next to their name. From the dropdown menu, select the “Make Admin” option.

It’s important to note that only the current admin can change the admin status of other members. If you are not the admin of the board, you will need to ask the current admin to perform this step for you.

Step 4: Confirm the Change

After selecting the “Make Admin” option, a confirmation message will appear. This message will inform you that the member has been made an admin of the board. Click on the “OK” button to finalize the change.

Once the change is confirmed, the selected member will receive admin privileges for the board. They will have access to additional settings and features that are exclusive to admins.
