The account administrator controls your 8x8 system via Configuration Manager, sets up the system and can also configure settings. Learn more here.

The account administrator is the person who controls your 8x8 system via Virtual Office Configuration Manager. The administrator sets up the system (usually with the help of Implementation Service) and can configure settings, edit extensions, and add or remove services. The administrator is also the main point of contact for 8x8.

After completing your initial order, the account administrator will receive an email from 8x8 Customer Support similar to the one below. Follow the links and instructions in that email to create a password and log in for the first time.
