(:title Creating PaperCut Administrators :)

PaperCut sets up one administrator account called "admin". This is the master administrator account, with access to all features, whose password is assigned during the configuration wizard. In large organizations you often want additional administrators. Although you could give everyone the master password it is better to assign their accounts administrative privileges in PaperCut.  They can then use their standard network account to login and administer PaperCut.

In PaperCut you can even grant some users only partial administration rights.  For example, you might allow them to view and edit user settings but not modify printer settings.

For instructions on how to create administrators in PaperCut, see the manual chapter on [[https://www.papercut.com/products/ng/manual/ch-sys-mgmt-admin-access.html | administrator access]].
