How to define the MetaShare administrator

On the top of MetaShare general settings, you define the MetaShare administrator:
Here you define the MetaShare administrator

This account will be granted full access-rights in all workspaces (added as Site Collection Administrator to the site collections MetaShare creates), that are created after the account was added to the setting. Any earlier created workspaces will have the earlier MetaShare administrator as the site collection administrator.

Recommendations/prerequisites for the account:

  1. It should preferably be a system account (not a normal user account).
  2. It should be a SharePoint Service Administrator (no SharePoint licence needed).
  3. As the account in some cases will be shown to the end-users, e.g. when unexpected errors occur, enabling end-users to send e-mails to the account, the account needs a Microsoft Exchange Online license and the account’s e-mail should also be monitored by an administrator.
