Add an Organization Commissioner

This can only be done on the web app.

League owners can grant administrator (commissioner) access to anyone in their organization. Commissioner access can be granted to as many members as needed/wanted to the league as a whole, or to divisions or sub-divisions within the league depending upon organization structure.

Note: Commissioner access can only be granted from the web app, not available in mobile apps. Commissioner access can only be granted to active TeamSnap members who have accepted their invitation that are not assigned to a team.

Grant Commissioner Access

Commissioner profiles must be left unassigned within the league prior to adding commissioner access, meaning they cannot be assigned to a specific team or division. If the person is already assigned to a team or is not yet a member, a new unassigned profile should be manually created for their commissioner access. Once their invitation has been accepted and they are an active roster member, you can edit the profile to grant commissioner access.

  1. Click league level Directory tab
  2. Use the search function to locate member profile in roster list (the profile must be Not Rostered)
  3. Click the Edit button for the member you want to grant access to
  4. Scroll down to the System Permissions section:

    1. Don't see the option to grant org editing capabilities? You are likely not logged in as the league owner. Commissioner access can only be granted by the league owner. Request that the league owner grant commissioner access on your behalf  OR  have them contact TeamSnap to authorize making you the owner on record.  
    2. See a lock icon next to Grant Org Editing Capabilities so you can't select it? The member you are trying to grant commissioner access to has not accepted an invitation to become an organization member. Send a new invite to join or resend the invitation. Once they have accepted, the box to Grant Org Editing Capabilities will become active. 
  5. Select desired access
    1. To grant admin rights over the whole organization check the box "Grant org editing capabilities"
    2. To grant admin rights to a specific area (division/subdivision) within the organization click Choose Specific Commissioner Access
      • Select divisions to grant commissioner access to and click Save
  6. Click Save
Attention: If you are unable to grant commissioner access, there are three possible reason: 1 - You are not the organization owner. 2 - The profile is assigned to a team. 3 - The member has not been invited and accepted their invitation. You can see that a member has accepted their invitation when there is a checkmark by their name in the Directory tab.
