Headrush is very configurable to your organization's needs.  People in Headrush that have an Admin role associated with them are able to make many to most of the changes on their own. Likewise, there are some configuration options easily available by a little coordination with the Headrush team.

With great power, comes great responsibility...
Please be mindful of how any changes may impact others in the system!
