Yes. Adobe recommends assigning at least one more system administrator to the account, so your team's management and deployment tasks can always be quickly completed. In case account-level issues arise, and you aren’t available to respond, having a backup system admin can help avoid potential disruptions in service.

Team administrators can edit the name of your team if you've purchased the teams plan directly from Adobe. For more information, see Console settings. The option to change team name is not available for VIP programs.

If you purchase the Teams membership on the Adobe website, you can buy more licenses anytime. Extra licenses are billed in your next billing cycle.

If you purchase licenses through a reseller, you can add licenses anytime. However, you must place an order with your reseller within 30 days from your billing anniversary date, to complete the transaction. If you don’t place your purchase order within 30 days, you can't add any more licenses, and your unpaid licenses are deactivated. All extra licenses co-terminate with your original anniversary date. For more information, see Add products and licenses.
