Change a member's role
Workspace Owners and Admins can manage the roles and permissions of other members on their team.
Who can manage roles
Primary Owners can promote and demote Owners and Admins. You cannot promote someone to be a Primary Owner, however, you can transfer ownership of a workspace.
Owners can promote members to Owner and Admin. They can demote an Admin, but cannot demote another Owner.
Admins can promote other members to Admin, but cannot demote Owners and other Admins.
Warning: Use care when promoting other members. Depending on your role, you may not be able to demote them afterwards.
