Administrators cannot force some settings to all users globally. Instead, the settings are saved per each user privately. Examples of these settings are:
- Default view (view that is opened by default after login)
- Current size (scale) of cards, width of columns, focused lanes selections, outer filters on board views
- Currently applied sorting by column values, state of collapsed or expanded hierarchy lanes in lists
It is possible to see whether a person is an Administrator or not on his or her detailed view, on Account Settings tab. How to access it: Personal Account Settings
The first account is granted with Administrator permissions by default. Further these permissions can be transferred to any other user.
Users without Admininstrator rights cannot add themselves to Administrators list.
