Changing board ownership

 
A board owner is either:
  • The person who created the board
  • Any subscribers of the board which the board creator has chosen to be co-owners of the board

But what if your board owner has left your team? You can still also get the ownership of their board back if you are the admin of the account. Keep reading to learn more. 👇

 

Add or remove board owners

If you are the owner of your board, you can add or remove other board owners by simply clicking on the crown icon next to a users name to turn it blue and thereby adding them as an owner, or grey to remove them as an owner!

Note:  Only the initial owner of the board and admins of the account can add other owners to the board. Additionally, admins can make themselves a board owner of any Main board.

 

How to take ownership of deactivated users' boards

Has a user been deactivated from your account and you now need to access their boards? As an admin of an account, you can definitely do so! With just a few clicks you can now switch ownership of all Main, Private and Shareable boards. To do so, take the following steps:

  • Click on your profile picture in the bottom left corner
  • Select "Admin"
  • Click into "Users"
  • Select the "Board Ownership" tab
  • In the drop downs, choose the current owner of the board and then the new owner who will be claiming ownership and click on "Add new owner"

Once complete, a pop-up will appear to confirm the change, click "Add as an owner" to confirm or "No, take me back" if you have second thoughts.

In case you have lost a board and can't find it in both the archives and recycle bin, you can use this feature. This will assign a new owner to any Private or Shareable board which does not have a board owner.

  • Click on your profile picture in the bottom left corner
  • Select "Admin"
  • Click into "Users"
  • Select the "Board Ownership" tab

Then, pick your name in the drop down menu and select "add new owner."
