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 include being able to add team members, add team admins, and configure Agile tools and team assets.
