Add or Change Salesforce System Administrators
|Knowledge Article Number||000006508|
Whenever you need to change a Salesforce System Administrator, have another one of your System Administrators create a new System Administrator User (for your new Administrator to use) and deactivate the previous System Administrator's login (if they're no longer with your company).
Create a new System Administrator User
Note: If you don't have any available User licenses, you'll need to temporarily disable a User using the steps in our "Deactivate (Delete) Users" documentation. After your new Administrator has been created, deactivate your previous System Administrator's User profile and reactivate the profile you temporarily deactivated.
1. Click Setup.
Deactivate the previous System Administrator User
After your new System Administrator has been created and you're logged in with the new credentials, deactivate the previous System Administrator's profile using the steps in our "Deactivate (Delete) Users" documentation.
If you receive an error when you deactivate your previous System Admin, follow the steps in our article about System Administrator deactivation errors.
