Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

An administrator should be able to grant/remove access per the organization’s business practices and procedures. The administrator is typically not necessarily a user of the system but may be if there is little staff available to perform the function. This is called segregation of duties. Segregation of duties is an important concept especially on financial systems. Administrators also may have the task of backing up the system and restoring data when necessary.

    As far as rights, as Administrator can do anything on the system which needs to be done, or that they want to do. My default the Administrator can see all the information on the system and change any setting. For most systems this can not be changed as the Administrator needs these rights to effectively manage the system.
