Clockify has two types of user roles in the Administrative category:

  • Owner: User who created the workspace
  • Admin: User with administrative permissions

Admin vs Owner:

If the Owner leaves the workspace, the entire workspace is deleted

Admins can appoint users as Managers, who have additional project and team management privileges.
Admins have a range of capabilities, including assigning roles, managing groups, inviting users, setting user statuses, defining billable rates, overseeing time entries, and editing workspace settings.
