This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Chat in rooms
I'm trying to following the instructions for changing the room admin of a room. I don't see a "rooms tab" in my browser or desktop version of HipChat.
It also doesn't appear in the screenshot on this very page.
Is there another way to change (or add more than one) room admin?
I didn't appreciate the difference between the website vs the web app. The key is to avoid clicking on the large "Launch the Web App" button and instead look at the menus on that page.
Note that the room admin setting UI implies there can be plural "admins", but I don't see any way to select more than one.
You're not able to add multiple room admins? I just walked through it and it worked for me.

This is not true. There is a room admin for each room, usually the creator. See the accepted answer.
HipChat admins are different animals and are presumably IT folks at larger companies. I don't know any of them and wouldn't want to bother them with room admin issues. We have hundreds if not thousands of rooms and probably only a 1-2 HipChat admins.
Thank you for setting me straight, Sloan. As Group admin for our company, I just learned that a "room admin" is, by default, the person who creates the room. I have never had to "administer" room admins before so I didn't know they exist. I suppose a room admin controls the privacy settings. Is there anything else he/she controls?
All good things come to an end - thanks to all our customers and partners who have been along the Hipchat and Stride journey with us. As of Feb 15th 2019, Hipchat Cloud and Stride have reached ...
