Transfer ownership

To transfer the ownership of a report to another user, select Make owner.

Be aware of the following rules when transferring ownership:

  • Ownership can be transferred only to a user who already has the Editor permission.

  • Once the ownership is transferred, the previous owner becomes an Editor of the report.
