The List Admin permission is set to be checked for all new members by default. This allows members to subscribe or assign other members to new and edited discussions, online docs, spreadsheets, uploaded files, calendar events, blogs and forums. Removing this permission prevents a member from subscribing others to such items.
Removing this permission is useful when a workspace is being used as a Forum or larger setting for sharing information.
Enable/disable List Admin permission
- Navigate to the People tab of a workspace
- Select Permissions

- Click Update

Note: This permission does not apply to tasks. Even with the List Admin permission disabled, a member will be able to assign a task, thus triggering an email notification.
