What is the difference between full control and admin privileges?  This is a relatively simple site with a very small number of users. Thanks.

  • Hi Sue,
    This is Bob Kasper from Microsoft Office 365 SharePoint Support.  Thank you for coming to the communities with your question on the differences between a user that has admin privileges and a user with full control privileges.
    When you create a user and give them admin rights you are giving them Full control.  So to answer your question there are the same thing .
    Please let me know if there is anything else that I can assist you with as I will be monitoring this thread over the next few days.
    Thank you,

  • Thanks for your help. Am I correct in understanding that to create sites, one needs that level of permissions?
