Can Team Admins view all boards?

Pretty much the title. This article makes it sound like they cannot see all the boards for your company:

Hi @Alex Saad,

Right! The Team Admin can’t see private board created by other team members unless they are shared with the team or with the Team Admin directly.

Hi @Marina - I’m glad I found this question. As the Company Admin licence holder for my organisation (we are on the Business Plan), it makes it labour intensive trying to trace licence use and users to boards that I cannot see. I have to reconcile every month and on-charge multiple business units and I’m having to email or call people to find out what boards they’re associated with.

And if Editors accidentally invite others to edit on a Day Pass then I’m getting notifications for it but no idea what board(s) they are accessing unless I contact them. I’m in an organisation of 4k people so this chasing will become a full time job if I'm not careful!

Can you guys change this to let Admins at least view the full list of boards and projects in their account? I don’t see the point of being an admin if I can’t see what my organisation is doing, or help them to manage licence costs easily. 

any news on this 2 year old item Company Admin not seeing all boards?

Bump this up as well. When the CEO is asking for help and you need them to grant you permissions as a team and enterprise admin :( 

Add the feature to be able to ‘take control of a board’ and add a note in to the board history of who did what… shouldn’t be a 3 year fix. Thanks

@vivek.p2015 - If you are the Company Admin of an Enterprise Plan subscription, if you enable the Extend Content Admin permissions, then you should be able to restore the board from the Trash. More on this here:


If you are a Company Admin of a Consultant or Business Plan, then only the board owner can restore the board from the Trash. You would first need to delete the owner from the team and plan, and take ownership of their content.
