Company Management

Local Administrator

The Local Administrator has control over the company that they have been assigned to manage by the Global Administrator.

Though a Local administrator mostly has the same privileges as a Global administrator, they do have certain restrictions on their set of permissions.

A Local administrator can:

  • Create a department in their company
  • Assign already created roles to that department
  • Add New Users
  • Manage/Edit Users
  • Assign users to departments
  • Add content sources
  • Browse through content in the Content Management tab
  • View their own company’s activities

A Local administrator cannot:

  • Access any other company
  • Create companies
  • Manage other companies
  • Create new roles
  • Manage any roles
  • Access any content in the Content Management Tab

Recall: In the previous section, we assigned Dhanish Kakkar as the Company Administrator of Qnext.


  • When a company administrator (Dhanish Kakkar in our case) logs into its FileFlex Enterprise using their company (local) administrative account, they will see a user interface similar to that of a Global administrator rather the regular FileFlex interface.
  • Regular FileFlex UI for a non-administrative account

    FileFlex UI for a Company Administrator

  • Click on the dropdown button in the Application Activity Bar.
  • Click the dropdown menu button

  • You will be able to access just your company and not any other companies.
  • Company Administrator can access only their company

  • In the Content Management Tab, company administrator can browse through content.
  • Company Administrator can browse content

  • However, they cannot access any content. A company administrator will view all the files as being disabled.
  • Company Administrator cannot access content. Files are disabled.

  • The reason that a company administrator can browse content is so that they can assign specific folders and Drives as content sources.
  • To do so, they may select those folders/drives and click Clone with Root Path from the open menu in the Activity Bar.
  • Clone with Root Path

  • That folder/drive is now added to your list of content sources, and it can be assigned to users/departments.
    You may rename or change icon of this specific drive or folder from its menu (3 dots beside the content source).
  • Drive or Folder has been added as a content source.
