You can have more than one type of account linked with the same email address! To switch between the two, click on your avatar or initials at the top right in your account, then select the account type you'd like to change to.
Licensing Spaces Pro offers some additional account types that include powerful administrative tools to set up and manage your school or district: an admin account, and a super admin account.
The primary difference between these two account types is that only super admin accounts can use the rostering import function to set up their school.
School super admin accounts can be created either by the Spaces support team, or by a district super admin.
District super admin accounts can be created only by the Spaces team for districts with a Pro license.
