Do you guys see any concerns if a user account that is initially used to setup an Office 365 has global administrator access removed

Hi @Sai Gutta ,

 

If not used in any automation, yes you can remove the access, Is advised to have just a few admin's.

 

If you need to know more about roles you can read more here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/add-users/about-admin-roles?view=o365-worldwide
