TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | TFS 2013
Learn how to add or remove an administrator for your team. It's always a good idea to have more than one user with administration permissions for a team. Team administrators can manage teams and configure team tools and manage projects. You may want to remove a user's administration permissions, for instance if the user is no longer active.
- To add or remove a user as a team administrator, you must be a member of the Project Administrators group, or a team administrator for the team you want to update.
- To be added as a team administrator, you must be granted Basic or higher access-level. Users granted Stakeholder access can't be added as a team administrator.

To get added as a team administrator, ask another team administrator or a member of the Project Administrators group. See Look up a project administrator.

Remove an administrator
Each team must have at least one administrator. To remove an administrator, you must first add at least a second administrator.
