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 get the ownership of his board back. Keep reading to learn more. 👇


How to make someone an owner?

If you are a board owner, you can turn other subscribers of the board as owners. Click on the people icon located on the top right of the board as below:


Next to each subscriber’s name is a crown symbol, which will be grey for non-owners. To “crown” someone a co-owner of the board, the board owner should click on the crown next to that person’s name, turning it blue.
