It's always a good idea to have more than one person with administration permissions for an area. You need to be a team administrator to Manage teams and configure team tools.

As a team administrator, you can configure, customize, and manage all team-related activities for your team. These activities include adding team members and team admins, and configuring Agile tools and team assets.

Prerequisites

To get added as a team administrator, ask another team admin, or a member of the Project Administrators group to add you.
