The easiest method for assigning administrators to a specific database is to use the Admin Console to setup a matter and assign the database to that matter. Then setup a user group, assign the administrator users to that group, and then assign that user group to the same matter. You can also quickly assign users as administrators for all databases using the Admin Console. While the Admin Console works well for these types of scenarios, it can be cumbersome if you just need to setup one user as an administrator on one database. For setting up administrators on a one user to one database basis, the easiest method is to select the database, and then use the User Management feature to assign that specific user as the administrator for that specific database. You can setup multiple administrators using this same method, however it may become time consuming if you have several users to assign as administrators to several databases, as assignments must be applied on a per user per database basis. Which tool you use depends on how many administrators you need to setup, on how many databases. The default, when adding users to a Concordance Desktop server in the Admin Console, is set to allow all users "Supervisor" privileges across all Concordance Desktop databases on the server. If however users are added to the server when a database has been migrated to Concordance Desktop
