A parent can have a child or sibling, and can grant permissions and access to any users they supervise. Read Intro to admin users to learn more about admin roles, relationships and permissions.

Deleting an admin user

You can delete an admin user only if you’re an administrator at the same level of hierarchy as (or higher than) the user you wish to delete, and if you’ve been granted permission to administer other admin users. You must also have access to the same accounts that the user has. 
 
Don’t delete a user if you need to see reporting information that only they can see. When a user is deleted, all associated reporting data will be deleted, as well. An alternative is to block them from signing in.
  1. Sign in to Engage Voice.
  2. Go to Users > Administrators.
  3. In the left panel, click the name of the user you’d like to delete.
  4. Click Delete at the bottom left to delete the user’s entire record.
  5. Confirm the deletion in the popup.
When you attempt to delete an admin user who has one or more children, a popup window will ask what you want to do with those children. Any changes you make at this point will affect the users, their children, and any roles that have been assigned to those users and children. Click the dropdown under Cascade Delete? to select one of these options:
  • No, Select New Parent: Select to assign the admin’s children (and their roles) to a new parent. This selection brings up the New parent field, where you can choose a new user to become the new parent of these “orphans.” 
  • Yes, Delete Children Users: Select to delete all the admin’s children (and their roles) when you delete the admin. This selection brings up a warning that asks if you’re sure you want to remove the user. The warning will also list the children who will be deleted. 
After making your selection, click OK to implement your changes.
