The administrator for a company’s LinkedIn page controls everything about the page, including the business title, logo, website link, and all descriptions included on the page. The company administrator is also the only person who can add or delete other admins. It’s important to limit and closely monitor anyone who is given an admin role to maintain the integrity and security of your company’s LinkedIn page. For a hardworking business owner, however, it’s often helpful to have more than one person who can access and manage internal social media accounts.

Only company administrators can edit company pages, add or remove other admins, and send company updates. Someone with administrative rights will have a blue “edit” button on the “home” tab of their company page.

Below are easy instructions for adding and removing an admin on your company page.

Two important notes:

  • You must visit from your desktop and go to the company or showcase page to make admin changes.
  • The maximum number of admins a company page can have is 50.

How to add an admin to your company page:

  1. On the top of your homepage, move your cursor over “me” and select “your business page” in the dropdown menu under “Manage”
  2. Enter your company name into the search box and click on your business name from the list.
  3. Click on the “admin tools” button on the top right of the screen.
  4. On the drop-down under “settings,” select “Manage Admins”linkedin admin screenshot

To remove an admin from your company page:

  1. Follow the above steps 1 through 4.
  2. Under “designated admins,” find the admin you would like to remove and click “remove admin” to the right of their name.
  3. Click “save changes” at the bottom of the pop-up.

If you would like to request administrative rights from your company page admin, follow these steps:

  1. On your LinkedIn profile, add and confirm your company email address.
  2. List your current position with the company on your profile.
  3. On your company page, scroll down to the “Want to help manage this page?” section.
  4. Click on “see admins” to see the current admins for your company page.
  5. As a 1st-degree connection to an admin, you can simply request to become an additional admin for the company page. If you’re not a 1st-degree connection to any company admins, you’ will need to connect with an admin first on LinkedIn.

Update Admins on Your Company Page on LinkedIn!

The reasons for adding and removing admins on your company page vary, whether it’s due to a new employee coming on or an old employee leaving. Sometimes, you just need to add a current employee onto the page so you can get a little extra help managing everything! Whatever the reason, it’s always best to provide access to more than one person so things can get done.
