What is a primary administrator

The primary administrator role in Zenefits will have full access to all apps, roles and permissions. They will also have the ability to create other administrator roles for their company in Zenefits as required. 

The person assigned as primary administrator for your company will depend on the structure of your organization and how you plan to use Zenefits. For smaller companies, the primary administrator may be the owner and CEO. For larger companies, the primary administrator may be the head of operations.

One important thing to note is that the primary administrator role cannot be split. It can only be assigned to one person. If that person switches roles or leaves the company, they must use the Change link in the Administrators tab of the Company Profile app to assign a new primary administrator.
