If you assign user administration privileges using profiles or permission sets, that user will gain the ability to administer most or all users and objects in your org.

Delegated administration allows you to specify which users (based on role/profile) and custom objects (standard objects excluded) a delegated administrator can manage.

Advantage of delegated administration to give some users additional administration access without making them full system administrators. Delegated users can do things such as create users or reset passwords but within the confines of certain roles or profiles.

I want to make sure I am understanding this correctly. If you assign a user as a Delegated Administrator they do NOT have accces to edit Standard Objects, correct? They would only have access to edit the Custom Objects I specify.
