Using Users & System Administration
The Users & System Administration panel is for adding and editing users and departments, customizing the look and feel of Kintone, security, access controls, audit logs, and time and language settings.
You can access the Users and System Administration panel in a couple of ways.
1. From the Kintone Portal
2. When you first log-in to your subdomain

To start Users & System Administration from the Kintone Portal, click the wheel icon on the top black banner of the page, near the search window, and click Users & System Administration.

Users & System Administration starts and the system displays the Service Usage page. 

The Administrator navigation bar on the left side of the page contains links to functions such as adding departments and users.
Another way to access Users & System Administration is from your Administration Home which appears when you first log in. The Administration Home page contains links to the Administrator setup functions, Kintone Portal app, and more.
To return to the Administration Home page, click Administration Home.
