Transfer ownership of a Box

Transfer ownership of a Box

The Box creator has the possibility to add or remove members of the Box. They can assign permissions to members, move files, change Box properties, and delete them once a project is finished. If you would like to transfer the ownership of the Box to another member with full license, this person will also take over the permissions of the Box creator. idgard® assigns the role of the Box manager to the previous creator. In the end, the new Box creator can remove the manager from the Box if necessary.

You use this function if:

  • The Box creator leaves the company
  • The project is to be taken over by another person
You are the creator of the Box

  • Open the Box
  • Open the 3-dot menu in the upper right corner of the green bar
  • Select the "Box settings"
  • Open the "Transfer ownership" function
  • Select the desired full license member of the Box.

Complete the process by clicking on "Transfer Box ownership".
