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?

A board owner can give ownership to other subscribers of the board by doing the following:

Step 1

Click on the Hamburger Icon Menu (3 lines) on the board

Step 2

Select Manage Subscribers

Step 3

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.
